Perhaps you’ve seen them floating over a Russian village? Or perhaps you’ve seen her toppling forward, arms full of wildflowers, as he arches above her head and steals an airborne kiss.

Partners in life and on canvas, Marc and Bella Chagall are immortalised as the picture of romance. But whilst on canvas they flew, in life, they walked through some of the most devastating times in history.

Daniel Jamieson’s The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk traces this young couple as they navigate the Pogroms, the Russian Revolution, and each other. 

Emma Rice’s sumptuous production is drawn in a theatrical language as fluid as Chagall’s paintings and woven throughout with music and dance inspired by Russian Jewish traditions.

The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk is available On Demand from Fri 11 Dec to Fri 18 Dec.
Choose either Audio Described, Closed Captioned or Standard performance, which you can access for 3 days from purchase. Tickets can be bought any time until 11.30pm on Friday 18th December.
