Wolverhampton Grand Theatre cancels performances from The Russian State Ballet

Wolverhampton Grand Theatre has announced it has cancelled the upcoming appearance from The Russian State Ballet.

The Russian State Ballet was set to play shows at the venue next week from 28 February to 2 March.

In a statement issued today (Saturday, 26 February), the venue announced they will no longer be going ahead.

They said: “Management and the Board of Trustees at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre have taken the decision to cancel the forthcoming appearance of The Russian State Ballet, which was due to perform from Monday 28 February to Wednesday 2 March.

“Discussions and consultations between management, producers, and agents have been ongoing since last Thursday.

“The decision to cancel is absolutely the right thing to do given the circumstances, however this will have a significant financial impact on the theatre which is still in recovery following the closure forced by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Wolverhampton Grand Theatre is a charity which works extensively within the whole community, working with everyone.

“All customers who have purchased tickets for the ballet will receive a full refund. Please do not contact the theatre, you will receive a direct communication within the next fourteen days.”
