The Tempest — Old Dog, New Tricks
No animals were harmed in the making
In a year of celebrating all that's been, Birmingham Royal Ballet is capping off its Shakespeare remembrancing with a completely new production. Full of theatrical wizardry and magical designs by War Horse’s Rae Smith, the full-length production has its world premiere on October 1 at Brum's Hippodrome and David Bintley's reimagining of Prospero's otherworldly isle is said to be looking entirely spellbinding. Set to a new score by right proper good British composer, Sally Beamish, and lit by Bruno Poet, who worked on Miss Saigon, you can catch the production in Birmingballs on one of eight occassions before it shows itself off to the rest of the country. Tickets start at £20. Book
