Birmingham Royal Ballet presents a tantalising triple bill, including two recently premiered works and the UK premiere of a new pas de deux created especially for Carlos Acosta and Alessandra Ferri. City of a Thousand Trades is a love letter to Birmingham, commissioned by Acosta to celebrate the city's richly diverse heritage and melting pot of cultures. The ballet is brought to stage by Havana-born choreographer Miguel Altunaga, and dramaturg and co-Director Madeleine Kludje from Birmingham Repertory Theatre, with music by Mathias Coppens, inspired by the city’s soundscape. Brazilian / British choreographer Daniela Cardim’s Imminent has been created with a team of international talent, including renowned composer Paul Englishby. As rainforests burn and consumption rises, as populism surges and democracy is tested, and as our health and harmony is exposed as fragile and unsustainable, everything seems out of balance - a tipping-point is approaching. Chacona is a powerful ensemble piece for 16 dancers set to music by J.S. Bach, played on stage by violin, guitar and piano. Created by Spanish choreographer Goyo Montero (Nuremberg Ballet / Acosta Danza) Sadler’s Wells presents a brand new production featuring an exclusive pas de deux performed by Carlos Acosta and guest artist Alessandra Ferri.
