Black Sabbath - The Ballet: Heavy metal meets classical dance in new Birmingham Royal Ballet show

  • Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi says he expects audiences will be "shouting and singing" when Carlos Acosta's Birmingham Royal Ballet takes to the stage in a work based on the band's back catalogue. Speaking at a special rehearsal session which Sky News was invited along to film, he said: "I love Carlos' approach, he'll go out there and do something he believes in… and it's the same approach Sabbath has had." Dances for the sold-out show, which begins in September, are still being choreographed but more is known of the music - the three-act ballet will feature eight re-orchestrated songs by the Birmingham rockers.
