In this Triple Bill Director David Bintley's newest work is The King Dances, which re-imagines the very beginnings of ballet, when men were quite literally, the kings of dance. Theme and Variations is a joyous ballet. With its thrilling Tchaikovsky music, it has delighted audiences all over the world. Enigma Variations was Elgar's springboard to fame, containing such famous pieces as the majestic 'Nimrod'. The piece is a series of musical and balletic sketches with Elgar's friends and Ashton's choreography giving new life to each character. This work will be shown alongside Birmingham Royal Ballet's Swan Lake, set to Tchaikovsky's legendary score.
