BRB2: Carlos Acosta’s Classical Selection
Sat 1 Jun 2024
Following its spectacular first performances in May 2023 at the New Theatre, which left audiences delighted and enthralled, Birmingham Royal Ballet’s BRB2 returns to Peterborough with more performances of Carlos Acosta’s Classical Selection from some of the very best young dancers from around the world.
From sensational, heart-stopping moments to comic masterpieces, this brilliant show includes instantly recognisable music and dance that will bring the house down. It’s full of sparkling classical highlights that include Frederick Ashton’s exquisite Rhapsody (Rachmaninov), created for Mikhail Baryshnikov and Lesley Collier, Carlos’s own temperature-raising Carmen (after Bizet), Ben Van Cauwenbergh’s popular French chanson-inspired Je ne regrette rien (Edith Piaf) and Les Bourgeois (Jacques Brel), Carlos’s interpretation of Fokine’s The Dying Swan (Saint-Saëns), and spectacular pas de deux from Bournonville’s delightful La Sylphide, the explosive Diana and Actaeon, and the iconic Swan Lake (Tchaikovsky).
For exciting talent and breathtaking dance, Carlos Acosta’s Classical Selection is THE show to see.
