Birmingham Royal Ballet is touring two bills this autumn. As well as Cyrano, the acclaimed Quantum Leaps is being performed in Plymouth on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, with dates in Sunderland and London in early November.

Quantum Leaps features a new piece created by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Director, David Bintley. Entitled E=mc², the ballet explores the different elements in Einstein’s famous equation – Energy, Mass and Speed. David kept a video diary during the creation of the piece, and you can see a few excerpts below:
