Birmingham Royal Ballet is proud to announce a first-of-its-kind collaboration with the multi-awarding Ballet Black, a company dedicated to increasing diversity in ballet, founded and directed by Ballet Now Creative Consortium member, Cassa Pancho. Dancers of both Birmingham Royal Ballet and Ballet Black will appear in this exciting triple bill.
The bill opens with the fourth Ballet Now commission, from young choreographer and Queensland Ballet dancer Jack Lister and composer Tom Harrold. Second is Cathy Marston’s moving tale of a broken marriage, the critically acclaimed and National-Dance-Award-winning ballet The Suit, in its first UK performances outside London. The bill will close with Twyla Tharp’s sizzling tribute to Old Blue Eyes, Nine Sinatra Songs.
