The Nutcracker at Royal Albert Hall

Birmingham Royal Ballet brought their Christmas favourite The Nutcracker to London’s Royal Albert Hall for the first time in 2017. We created bespoke sections of sprung dance floor to help transform the world-famous concert hall into a stage suitable for ballet. It was an overnight job to get the stage installed in time for the first performances.

Doors for Birmingham Royal Ballet

This door is part of a set from Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Le Baiser de la fée, to be performed as part of a triple bill this June.

 

The existing door has been causing headaches for BRB’s production teams as it’s so heavy – this causes problems for technical staff who need to move set pieces around easily during a production – and so Plane Structure were commissioned to remake the doors to a lighter spec. Our version replaces the heavy timber original with a lighter-weight aluminium structure, clad with thin ply-wood.

 

Three Short Story Ballets is appearing at Birmingham Hippodrome in June 2017.
