The captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences is a firm favourite with audiences and played to packed houses night after night on it most recent visit to Newcastle Theatre Royal in 2021.
Dance takes centre stage on Wed 24 & Thu 25 Apr 2024 when Rambert make a much anticipated return to perform two darkly funny short pieces packed with originality. Cerberus and Goat have been created by Ben Duke who is known for story-telling that reveals the absurd, the savage and the funny.
