The Big Ballet is an ensemble of 16 Corps de Ballet dancers, each weighing no less than 16 stone and united in a common cause - not to lose a single pound.

From Russia’s Ural Mountains, a region from where Tchaikovsky himself hails, The Big Ballet formed in 1994 and set out to deliberately and, above all, self-confidently challenge accepted social standards in a world where the pursuit of slenderness and beauty seems obsessive.


The dancers courageously and imposingly prove that grace, elegance, charisma and nimbleness is not the preserve of the “thin”, proudly presenting their voluptuous yet surprisingly sinuous and flexible figures.


These ladies enchant their audiences with different classical and modern ballet pieces in a hilarious comedy show full of fun and astonishing choreography, proving that you shouldn’t take life, or yourself, too seriously.


The Big Ballet will be at the Lichfield Garrick on Thursday 31 March and Friday 1 April at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £19.75, and can be booked from or by calling the Box Office on 01543 412121.
