About Birmingham Royal Ballet: Penguin Café Triple Bill/ The Sleeping Beauty

Birmingham Royal Ballet returns to Sadler's Wells with two contrasting evenings: classic ballet The Sleeping Beauty and three short works from Artistic Director David Bintley.

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.

"The grandest achievement, the pinnacle of style, amongst the great classics" - Sunday Times

On her christening day, Princess Aurora is cursed by the wicked fairy Carabosse: one day the Princess will prick her finger on a spindle and die. But the kind Lilac Fairy tempers the curse, so the Princess will instead fall asleep until awoken by a kiss. This breathtaking production of The Sleeping Beauty by Director Laureate Sir Peter Wright features original choreography by Marius Petipa, and is set to Tchaikovsky’s classic score, performed live by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia.
