“What will you give me if I spin straw into gold for you?”
balletLORENT‘s award-winning team who brought you Rapunzel and Snow White are back with the beloved tale Rumpelstiltskin, directed by Liv Lorent and retold by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.
Full of action and humour this emotionally rich fairytale is set in the rural world of sheep, straw,
wool and spinning where the alchemist, Rumpelstiltskin, is an outcast until he is revealed to be “the true prince that he was.”
With a score by Doctor Who composer Murray Gold, costumes designed by Michele Clapton (Game of Thrones), and narration by actor Ben Crompton, this is dance theatre for 21st century audiences.
Performed by world-class inimitable balletLORENT dancers and a local intergenerational cast.
Luscious dance for all ages - balletLORENT are a delight.
