Birmingham Royal Ballet returns to Sadler’s Wells with two contrasting evenings; classic Shakespearean love story Romeo And Juliet, and triple bill Pointes Of View.

It is love at first dance when Romeo Montague tricks his way into the Capulets’ masked ball and falls madly in love with the beautiful Juliet. The passion between them is forbidden but the star-crossed lovers hatch a perilous plot to be together. Birmingham Royal Ballet’s production of Romeo And Juliet features a sweeping score by Prokofiev and soaring choreography by Kenneth MacMillan.

Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Pointes Of View features MacMillan’s uplifting Concerto, a sparkling display of classical ballet. Slaughter On Tenth Avenue was created as part of the Rodgers and Hart musical On Your Toes, and is a tale of a happy-go-lucky hero who literally has to dance for his life. In The Upper Room is an exhilarating, athletic ballet by American dance phenomenon Twyla Tharp.

Theatregoers younger than five will not be admitted to Birmingham Royal Ballet.
