Baiser triple bill Le Baiser de la fée / Arcadia / Pineapple Poll A showcase of heritage, modern and brand new magical one-act ballets complete the season for the Birmingham Royal Ballet. In Le Baiser de la fée a young boy‟s life is marked from the moment a fairy saves his life in the snow, unleashing magical joys and sorrows in choreographer Michael Corder‟s beautiful interpretation of this classic Hans Christian Anderson tale.
Pineapple Poll, a thoroughly English Gilbert and Sullivan tale of a gang of girls, a crew of sailors and ballet aboard the HMS Hot Cross Bun features the timeless choreography of John Cranko.
Birmingham Royal Ballet First Artist Ruth Brill captures the idyllic lost world of Arcadia in her brand new work for the Company. Inspired by music composed by John Harle, Arcadia is set in the land of the title; an idyllic lost world of perfect bliss, a pastoral paradise. This is the land roamed by Pan, the god of the woods, fields, shepherds and flocks. Arcadia is Ruth Brill‟s first main-stage creation for Birmingham Royal Ballet and promises to be dramatic, accessible and otherworldly.
