Birmingham Royal Ballet to perform at Glastonbury Festival

Birmingham Royal Ballet (BRB) will make its debut at Glastonbury Festival on the iconic Pyramid Stage.

The performance of what BRB described as a “powerful and moving abstract ballet”, Interlinked by Juliano Nunes, will take place on Sunday 30 June.

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 Birmingham Royal Ballet are ready and raring to bring Glastonbury festival-goers a performance to be remembered.”

The performance at Glastonbury follows on from the sell-out success of Black Sabbath – The Ballet in 2023.

It also follows on from a successful 2024 UK tour of one of the company’s most beloved classics, The Sleeping Beauty.

Later this year, the company 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.
