A co-production with Houston Ballet Foundation
Supported (2016) by The Patrick Trust, The Foyle Foundation, David & Sandra Burbidge, The Leche Trust, The Oakley Charitable Trust, The RVW Trust, The John S. Cohen Charitable Trust, The Lynn Foundation, and Birmingham Royal Ballet’s New Work Syndicate and Director’s Appeal, and The Big Give
Immerse yourself in a magical world. 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 promises to be the dance event of 2016 – an unforgettable experience.
