I remember they covered ENB a few years back, so fingers crossed.

 

 

Yes, that was great - and of course, they covered ENO (?) doing Wagner, which must have scared the beejeesus out of the hungover early risers on a Sunday lunchtime! lol

Oh bother. This means my husband is going to try to convince me to go at some point….

 

Didn't tickets sell out several months ago? Or are you going there already?

Wouldn't doing their Black Sabbath ballet be more apt for Glastonbury?😄

 

Especially if Tony Iomi coud be persuaded to turn up!

You have to be registered with The Glastonbury Festival, months in advance, and be lucky to get one in the first 1-2 hours when they go on sale. You'd be very, very lucky to get a ticket at this point!

  • FIRST-EVER PERFORMANCE AT THE UK’S BIGGEST AND MOST ICONIC MUSIC AND PERFORMING ARTS FESTIVAL BY BIRMINGHAM ROYAL BALLET
     

  • BIRMINGHAM ROYAL BALLET  WILL PERFORM INTERLINKED BY CHOREOGRAPHER JULIANO NUNES ON SUNDAY 30 JUNE
     

  • BIRMINGHAM ROYAL BALLET  WILL BE THE ONLY BALLET COMPANY PERFORMING AT THIS YEAR’S FESTIVAL


Birmingham Royal Ballet will make their debut at the iconic Glastonbury Festival on Sunday 30 June 2024. Taking to the legendary Pyramid Stage, BRB will dance Interlinked by choreographer Juliano Nunes.

 

 

BRB will be the only ballet company to perform at this year’s festival, playing in front of thousands of festival goers and broadcast across the globe to millions.

 

 

Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Director, Carlos Acosta said: “We are honoured to be bringing ballet to the iconic Pyramid Stage at this year’s Glastonbury Festival. All of us at BRB are ready and raring to bring Glastonbury festival-goers a performance to be remembered, as will we too.

 

 

“The young and extremely talented Juliano Nunes’s Interlinked has become an audience favourite since its premiere in 2022 as part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival marking the Commonwealth Games in our home city. Since then, it has gone on to play in venues across the UK and USA, including last year’s New York Pride celebrations. It seems like the perfect fit to bring to the Pyramid Stage in 2024. ” 

 

 

Interlinked features a specially composed score by Australian composer Luke Howard and lighting design from Netherlands-based Northern Irish designer Tom Visser. The piece for 16 dancers explores themes of gender identity and the perception of self, falling into four distinct movements. 

Created by an international team, Interlinked is an abstract piece that explores themes of unity, the influences that we have on each other’s lives, and how the energy that we exude bounces from one person to the next, in a never ending circle. 

 

 

Birmingham Royal Ballet’s featured performance at Glastonbury Festival follows on from the sell-out success of Black Sabbath - The Ballet in 2023 and a triumphant 2024 UK tour of one of the Company’s most beloved classics, Sir Peter Wright’s The Sleeping Beauty. Later this year, BRB will present the world premiere of Luna, a brand-new work inspired by the pioneering women of Birmingham presented by an all-female creative team.

My husband is going for the second year in a row. He made getting tickets look easier than Friends booking day for ROH 🤣. Last year was gorgeous weather, I am secretly hoping it is revoltingly muddy so he has a slightly less happy experience and doesn’t push it for me to go based mostly  on camping generally and toilets.

I can see why Interlinked was chosen but like others here, couldn't help thinking Black Sabbath the Ballet would have been very apt - especially act 2 or act 3 - and so much fun!  😀  🎶  🎤  Fingers crossed It'll be on BBC!

Oh but @Blossom a wet Glastonbury is like a wet Paris-Roubaix - schadenfreude for the rest of us 🤣

Well, exactly, as long as I'm not there... Even if there is ballet!
