A spellbinding celebration of music and ballet, featuring dancers from the renowned Birmingham Royal Ballet. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is thrilled to welcome back dancers from the prestigious ballet company for another dazzling celebration of some of the greatest Russian works of Romanticism ever written.
Iconic dances from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker and Swan Lake and Minkus’ Don Quixote, and orchestral masterpieces from Glinka, Rimsky-Korsakov and Khachaturian, feature in this enchanting gala event, conducted by Barry Wordsworth. Now featuring an 1812 Overture firework finale!
Passion, versatility and uncompromising artistic standards, as well as a belief that music is a gift that can bring people together and inspire positive change, have been RPO hallmarks for the past 75 years. As we embark on the next exciting chapter, we invite you to join the journey and share the thrill of live orchestral music.
