- Evenings 7.30pm
- from £20.50*
A unique opportunity to see two iconic and emotionally charged texts brought to life through breathtaking performances from Scottish Ballet’s extraordinarily athletic and expressive dancers.
The Crucible (2014)
Choreographer: Helen Pickett
Based on Arthur Miller’s 1953 Tony award-winning play, Pickett’s second creation for Scottish Ballet layers rich, evocative characterisations in a story of opposites robed in sexual sin, translating this incredible dramatisation of the Salem witch trials with her inimitable style of dance language. This chilling tale of innocent people destroyed by a malicious rumour will captivate you with its spellbinding sensuality and capacity to provoke and question.
Ten Poems (2009)
Choreographer: Christopher Bruce
Set to an emotive recording of ten Dylan Thomas poems read by Welsh actor Richard Burton, Ten Poems builds on the melodic rhythm of the famous prose, loved as much for their musicality as for their themes of lost innocence, nostalgia for childhood, and death. Christopher Bruce, one of Britain’s most prolific and important choreographers, brings each one to life with exquisite vignettes of story and character.
