Classical ballet, spoken word and eye-catching physical theatre combine in a reimagining of Sergei Prokofiev’s classic ‘Peter and the Wolf’, taking place as part of a double bill of dance at Wolverhampton’s Grand Theatre in May. Join Peter and best friend Bird as their day out takes an unexpected turn. The performance is narrated by poet Hollie McNish.
Inspired by a poem by David Laing, ‘Seasons in Our World’ explores the relationship between the cycle of the seasons and individual human lives and communities and is set to a new score from award-winning composer Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian.
The show appears on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 May; Nick Owen opens a gala performance on Saturday evening, hosting an audience with Birmingham Royal Ballet’s artistic director David Bintley before the performances. Gala tickets for this one-off performance are available for £60 in the Dress Circle and include a pre-show drink and a post-show reception in the Encore Lounge.
