CARLOS CURATES: R&J REIMAGINED

14 - 16 OCT 2021 BIRMINGHAM HIPPODROME

Next week we join Birmingham Royal Ballet for two contemporary interpretations of Shakespeare's iconic tragedy. Carlos Curates: R&J Reimagined is a double-bill curated by Birmingham Royal Ballet's Artistic Director, Carlos Acosta.

We are excited to perform Romeo + Juliet with live orchestra for the very first time as we are joined by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s orchestra, the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, under the baton of Martin Georgiev. Our cast will appear alongside Birmingham Royal Ballet's performance of Edward Clug's Radio and Juliet, a new addition to their repertoire danced to music of Radiohead, which explores the story from Juliet's perspective should she choose to live.
Both socially distanced and full capacity performances available.

Behind the Scenes

Amelia Cameron Padmore joined RKDC as Assistant Producer on Romeo + Juliet from August – September 2021. We heard all about her experience:
"Being able to be an Assistant Producer on Romeo + Juliet with Rosie Kay Dance Company at the Birmingham Hippodrome was an amazing experience. My days were filled with experiences of many different parts of the theatre from set construction and get ins with the amazing Hippodrome Technical Stage Team, to tech rehearsals and seeing all the plans and designs come to life, to Stage Management duties, working with the Costume Department and the Marketing and Communications Team at RKDC and the incredible creative team and cast."
