6-9 October Such Sweet Thunder - Bintley / Duke Ellington Triple Bill
Nutcracker Sweeties / The Orpheus Suite (new) / The Shakespeare Suite

13 - 16 October 2004

1 - 5 March 2005
Romeo & Juliet (MacMillan)

9 - 12 March 2005
The Four Seasons (Hindle) (new commission from former BRB dancer) / Prodigal son (Balanchine) / In the Upper Room (Tharp)

8 - 11 June 2005 Stravinsky programme
Duo Concertante (Balanchine) / Scenes de Ballet (Ashton) / The Rite of Spring (Hodson Archer reconstructed version, sets and costumes loaned from the Joffrey Ballet)

17 - 18 June 2005
Allegri Diversi (Bintley) / Broullards (Cranko) (not done by the company since 1981) / Elite Syncopations (MacMillan)


This is just what's on in Birmingham - they are also touring, and The Two Pigeons (Ashton) and Western Symphony and the Bintley triple come to London in late October.

This is an usually large amount of mixed bills for a British company to put on at present - I hope they sell well.

Thank you, Lynette. This would be a large number of triple bills for many American companies, too -- maybe it will start a trend!
