See video

Introduction

Acclaimed at its 2012 premiere as a triumph of storytelling and design, Christopher Wheeldon has master-minded a fabulous and breathtaking co-production for Dutch National Ballet and San Francisco Ballet.

Respectful of tradition but firmly in touch with the 21st century in this contemporary interpretation, Wheeldon’s heroine takes charge of her own destiny in a production that delights at every level, for every age. Superbly performed choreography that is ‘bright and lyrical, elegant and humorous’ (The Times) complements sensational set and design by top Broadway talents Julian Crouch and Basil Twist. There are glamorous wigs and costumes galore, flying chairs, a magic tree, puppets and cinematic wizardry.

From beautiful, blue sky opening image to happy and glorious ending, you will be spellbound.

 

Time: 12-14 Mar 2015 (Thu-Sat), 7:30 PM (Approx 2 hr 30 mins incl. two intervals)
