AWARD-WINNING BALLET AT DARLINGTON HIPPODROME
Saturday 1 - Sunday 2 September 2018
Performed by world-class dancers and a local intergenerational cast of children and older adults, balletLORENT brings the beloved tale of Rumpelstiltskin to life at Darlington Hippodrome on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 September.
balletLORENT 's award-winning team who brought you Rapunzel and Snow White are back with an original adaptation of this beloved tale Rumpelstiltskin, directed by Liv Lorent and retold by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.
Rumpelstiltskin is the story of the outsider shunned for being different. He is the original super mutant, and fairytale X-man.
A story of love, obsession, grief and reconciliation in a show made as much for adults as it is for children.
With a score by Doctor Who composer Murray Gold, costumes designed by Michele Clapton (Game of Thrones), narration by actor Ben Crompton (Game of Thrones), set design by Phil Eddolls, and lighting design by Malcolm Rippeth and Michael Morgan, this is dance theatre for 21st century family audiences.
Performed by 8 of balletLORENT's professional dancers, who are joined by an inter-generational cast of children (aged 4-9 yrs) and elderly people (aged 65+ yrs) who have been sourced through local primary schools, and community groups. This really is a show for all the family!
Recommended age 7+
