Performed by the Birmingham Royal Ballet, David Bintley's acclaimed Carmina burana is a thrilling, large-scale production. Inspired by the satirical writings of medieval priests, Carl Orff's rousing choral tour de force is a feast in its own right. Presented with Orff's dramatic and emotionally charged music, Bintley's breathtaking choreography ensures an unforgettable experience.

 

An encounter with the mind-blowing Goddess Fortuna deals three seminarians a major lesson in the fickle nature of fate. Compelled to abandon their sacred studies to pursue a more sensual approach to life, forbidden pleasures and physical temptations quickly become the young men's most eager areas of revision. Soon the young celebrants are soaring with passion, love and alcohol.

 

Serenade is a non-narrative ballet created by George Balanchine, one of the greatest choreographers of the 20th century. Inspired by Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for String, the piece has no underlying story, instead providing a beautiful visual accompaniment to Tchaikovsky’s music.
