A Day in the Life of BRB is a special photoshoot, taken on the 3 Nov 2021 while Birmingham Royal Ballet were touring to Sadler’s Wells to show London their Curated by Carlos triple bill.

The gallery follows the company through the day, starting with company class, and work in the studio on two pieces being danced in Curated by Carlos – Miguel Altunaga’s City of a Thousand Trades and Chacona by Goyo Montero. The later featured a new pas de deux created especially for Carlos Acosta and Alessandra Ferri, who can also be seen in this set.

To compliment these rehearsal pictures we also have a gallery of Carlos Acosta and Alessandra Ferri in the final staged version of Chacona.

The Curated by Carlos triple bill is being streamed from the 11-18 November 2021 as part of Sadler’s Wells Digital Stage – more details at www.sadlerswells.com/digital-stage

All the pictures are included on this page or you can see on Flickr.
