Ballet production photographs

Archive Unit

Scope and Content

Photographs of ballet performances by the Sadler’s Wells Ballet (formerly Vic-Wells Ballet, later The Royal Ballet) and Sadler’s Wells Theatre Ballet (later Royal Ballet touring company, Sadler’s Wells Royal Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet). Many of the photographs are not labelled, but it seems likely that most of the photographs are of performances by the Sadler’s Wells Ballet (both at Sadler’s Wells Theatre and on tour) or Sadler’s Wells Theatre Ballet. Possibly some of the unlabelled photographs could be of other companies which performed at Sadler’s Wells. Other photographs of ballet performances are included with the postcards (see S/SWT/…) and in the Vic-Wells Association’s photograph albums (see S/SWT/…).
