Birmingham Royal Ballet is proud to welcome Ballet Black, the multi award-winning company dedicated to increasing diversity in ballet, to dance alongside them in this groundbreaking mixed bill.

Ballet Black was founded and directed by Ballet Now Creative Consortium member, Cassa Pancho.

The bill opens with A Brief Nostalgia, the latest Ballet Now commission from young choreographer and Queensland Ballet dancer Jack Lister and composer Tom Harrold.

Second is Ballet Black’s The Suit, a powerful South African fable of love, destruction and oppression re-imagined by Cathy Marston’s in this critically acclaimed and National-Dance-Award-winning production.

The bill will close with Twyla Tharp’s sizzling tribute to Old Blue Eyes, Nine Sinatra Songs.

Jack Lister’s A Brief Nostalgia will feature live music from the Royal Ballet Sinfonia conducted for these performances by Martin Georgiev.
