Sadler's Wells is hosting Birmingham Royal Ballet's The Tempest!

Immerse yourself in a magical world. Birmingham Royal Ballet's Artistic Director David Bintley’s new ballet conjures Prospero’s magical isle from Shakespeare’s late masterpiece into a spellbinding new work of ballet theatre.

At once enchanting and elemental, The Tempest is a powerful story of a man determined to right past wrongs by all means in his power. This creative collaboration with acclaimed composer Sally Beamish, and designer Rae Smith (The Prince of the Pagodas, War Horse) intertwines themes of love, loyalty, and loss, punctuated by a comic duo, more than one dastardly conspiracy and a spectacular danced masque featuring gods and spirits.

The Tempest will be shown alongside Birmingham Royal Ballet's Shakespeare Triple Bill.

This is a limited run show so do not miss the opportunity to get your tickets!

Elizabeth Beattie17th October

Wonderful dancing, Miranda was a star. Music a little discordant but probably suited the storyline . Innovative set & sound effects. An interesting blend of theatre and ballet. Recommended. Elizabeth Beattie Visiting from Sydney, Australia

The Tempest was great BUT the disgraceful greedy way of booking was not! How can you call yourselves TRUST Pilot when you over charge for tickets? Firstly you edge your way into the Sadlers Wells Booking Space and then OVER charge for tickets and their collection!
