This week, audiences in the South West of England can get a special preview of Swan Lake, before Birmingham Royal Ballet performs this piece in full throughout autumn 2012.

An excerpt from the piece forms part of the programme for the South-West leg of our 2012 split tour, which sees us dancing in Poole and Truro this week.

Birmingham Royal Ballet are bringing the sexy, sassy, Slaughter on Tenth Avenue to both Durham and York next week. The ballet tells the tale of a hapless 1930s stage performer who must extend his performance in order to stall a hitman who’s been instructed to bump him off as soon as his solo ends. The reason for the contract on his life? He’s become rather to close to a mob boss’s girlfriend, down at the local speak-easy.

Here you can see a clip of Robert Parker and Céline Gittens in rehearsals for the piece, which the Company performed last year as part of our anniversary gala in the presence of HRH The Prince of Wales.
