Prices from: £15.00
A woman in a sage green pinafore dress and white bonnet stands on pointe, feet wide, palms open towards us. Two women in similar outfits in different shades of green leap away from the first, arms and one leg extended. A shadow on the back wall resembles a child’s drawing of a wolf with pointed ears and sharp teeth.

Arthur Miller’s drama of power and persecution is brought to the Sadler’s Wells stage by Scottish Ballet.

In the village of Salem, a teenage girl imagines her future. A marriage is tested. Church bells ring, uniting the community in prayer. These are good people. This could be anywhere. They fear the shadows in the forest, but the real monsters are much closer to home.

You’ll be on the edge of your seat watching this tight-knit society unravel into chaos. Ask yourself: when everything is in the balance, what are you prepared to pay for the truth?

Helen Pickett’s choreography unleashes the emotional force of Miller’s masterpiece, vividly accompanied by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra performing Peter Salem’s haunting new score.

Birmingham Royal Ballet - Don Quixote
A dancer wearing ballet shoes and a red ruffled lace dress leaps into a split, one leg pointed forward, the other high behind her head and pointing to the sky. Her arms stretch above her head, extending the diagonal. On the sunset red background, a giant yellow fan with delicate cut out patterns seems to sink like the sun behind the horizon of low hills.
