Birmingham Royal Ballet — The Tempest Tickets
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.
