King's Lynn Corn Exchange

The exquisite dancers from the Birmingham Royal Ballet won the hearts of the audience at the King's Lynn Corn Exchange with their beautiful mix of classical, adventurous and jazz performances.

With three contrasting performances, the company showcased its diversity and the unique and exceptional talents of its dancers.

The first performance, Concerto Barocco to the music of Bach, was delightful and captivating as the dancers moved seamlessly in step with the music, complementing every note. Indeed, the ballerinas almost become the music, with an elegant and polished performance.

The gritty performance of the emotionally charged Twilight, which was set to music by John Cage and played on the intriguing 'prepared' piano by Ross Williams, was simply bewitching. Performed by Victoria Marr and Tyrone Singleton, its seductive and powerful vibe was expressed wonderfully through the silent words of the ballet.
