THIS spring, Scottish Ballet presents the world premiere of A Streetcar Named Desire, telling Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play through a unique fusion of drama and dance.
It comes to Glasgow’s Theatre Royal from April 11 to 14 and we have a pair of tickets to see this fantastic show on Friday, April 13 at 7.30pm.
This is the 65th anniversary year of Williams’ play which tells the story of Blanche DuBois, a fading southern belle trying to leave a troubled past behind her.
She moves into her sister Stella’s New Orleans apartment but Stella’s brutish husband Stanley sees that Blanche is not what she appears to be, and sets out to destroy her.
A Streetcar Named Desire has been created for Scottish Ballet by theatre director Nancy Meckler and choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, and is set to a brand new jazz-inspired score by award winning film and television composer Peter Salem.
This bold new production pushes the boundaries of modern dance, and is already being hailed as one of the theatre highlights of the year.
Meckler, artistic director for Shared Experience Theatre, has directed for the National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company amongst others, and on Broadway and in the West End.
She has also directed two feature films – Sister My Sister and Alive and Kicking.
Ochoa is an award-winning choreographer and has made works for Dutch National Ballet, The Royal Ballet of Flanders and more, and recently created choreography for international fashion designers Viktor & Rolf.
