Birmingham Royal Ballet exhibition

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

I’ve been back at Birmingham Royal Ballet helping out with Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake but one week I was given a rather unusual task of helping to install an exhibition of costumes, sets and props.

Birmingham Royal Ballet are celebrating 20 years of moving to Birmingham from London.  As part of their celebrations there was a gala performance with excerpts from their whole repertoire.

The exhibition is located in the foyer of Hippodrome Theatre.  You can just walk in and have a look around
