Checkmate, part of our Autumn Glory triple bill, sees a range of chess pieces do battle across the stage, with the Red side watched over by the frail and vulnerable king, and the Black side led by a fierce and dangerous queen.

Here you can see two clips of stage rehearsals for Checkmate, in which Iain Mackay dances a solo as the Red Knight, and Victoria Marr performs a solo as the Black Queen.

Birmingham Royal Ballet performs Autumn Glory at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London, this Tuesday and Wednesday, and at the Theatre Royal, Plymouth, next Tuesday and Wednesday. Click on each venue name for details.
