Two incredible ballets, one from established choreographer, Director David Bintley, and one from a choreographer working on this scale for the first time, Juanjo Arqués.
When young King Louis XIV of France danced the role of the Sun God in a spectacular court entertainment he earned himself the soubriquet The Sun King. In The King Dances, David Bintley casts a modern eye on the very beginnings of ballet, when men were kings of dance.
As part of Birmingham Royal Ballet’s innovative Ballet Now programme, Juanjo Arqués’s Ignite, inspired by Turner’s painting The Burning of the House of Lords and Commons, receives its world premiere in Birmingham.
