Birmingham Royal Ballet returns to Sadler’s Wells with three short works from Artistic Director David Bintley, playing alongside their production of The Sleeping Beauty.

Tombeaux is David Bintley’s homage to classical ballet, a lament on the death of his mentor, the great Frederick Ashton. E=mc² is a truly exhilarating experience; exploring Einstein’s celebrated ‘Special Theory of Relativity’ in music and dance, it was the winner of the last-ever South Bank Show Award for Dance. Meet a colourful host of animals seeking shelter from the storm in ‘Still Life’ At The Penguin Café. Be introduced to a morris-dancing flea, a ballroom-dancing ram, a woolly monkey and many more. This is a witty and poignant look at man’s effect on the world.
