DateWednesday 18th October 2017
DescriptionBy William Shakespeare Music: Felix Mendelssohn Award Winning Ballet Cymru present a stunning version of Shakespeare's most magical play. This funny and heart-warming adaptation features vibrant classical choreography danced by some of the finest dancers around. Mendelssohn's joyous music is interpreted by Artistic Director Darius James and highlights radiant costumes, sets and video projection. A world of magic and mayhem. The Queen of the Fairies Titania, and Puck the mischievous messenger, inhabit the supernatural fairy kingdom. Bottom and his boot-wearing "Rude Mechanicals" present their famous play Pyramus and Thisbe. And finally, the lovers, caught in a thrilling web of mistaken identity and confusion finally find their way through the Athenian forest to an unforgettable and joyous reconciliation. Ballet Cymru are a young, vital group of dancers who are pushing back the barriers of classical ballet. Using powerful and timeless stories the company challenges its dancers to interpret some of the finest characters in literature. Under the Artistic Direction of Darius James, the company continues to develop its relationship with audiences through accessible outreach work and exceptional, stylish performances. This is a co-production between Ballet Cymru and The Riverfront Theatre.
