Wednesday 10 November 2021 saw the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra perform, under Barry Wordsworth’s direction, alongside dancers from the renowned Birmingham Royal Ballet. With iconic pieces from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker and Swan Lake, Minkus’ Don Quixote and Prokoviev’s Romeo and Juliet, the evening celebrated some of the greatest Russian works of Romanticism.

The finale featured the 1812 Overture with fireworks, making it a night to remember.
