The Birmingham Royal Ballet is to perform on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival on Sunday 30 June 2024.



The first-ever performance at the UK’s biggest and most iconic music and performing arts festival by Birmingham Royal Ballet. They will be making their debut at the iconic Glastonbury Festival taking to the legendary Pyramid Stage. Birmingham Royal Ballet will dance Interlinked by choreographer Juliano Nunes.

Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Director, Carlos Acosta said: “We are honoured to be bringing ballet to the iconic Pyramid Stage at this year’s Glastonbury Festival. All of us at BRB are ready and raring to bring Glastonbury festival-goers a performance to be remembered, as will we too.

“The young and extremely talented Juliano Nunes’s Interlinked has become an audience favourite since its premiere in 2022 as part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival marking the Commonwealth Games in our home city. Since then, it has gone on to play in venues across the UK and USA, including last year’s New York Pride celebrations. It seems like the perfect fit to bring to the Pyramid Stage in 2024.”

Interlinked features a specially composed score by Australian composer Luke Howard and lighting design from Netherlands-based Northern Irish designer Tom Visser. The piece for 16 dancers explores themes of gender identity and the perception of self, falling into four distinct movements. 

Created by an international team, Interlinked is an abstract piece that explores themes of unity, the influences that we have on each other’s lives, and how the energy that we exude bounces from one person to the next, in a never-ending circle.

Birmingham Royal Ballet’s featured performance at Glastonbury Festival follows on from the sell-out success of Black Sabbath - The Ballet in 2023 and a triumphant 2024 UK tour of one of the Company’s most beloved classics, Sir Peter Wright’s The Sleeping Beauty.

Later this year, BRB will present the world premiere of Luna, a brand-new work inspired by the pioneering women of Birmingham presented by an all-female creative team.
