balletLORENT is one of the best storytelling dance companies in Europe. For our 30th Anniversary tour we present one of our best loved fairytale productions - Rapunzel.
With emotional storytelling at its heart, Rapunzel delivers a fast paced and dynamic performance that captivates family audiences.
Carol Ann Duffy’s glorious Rapunzel is told from the imagination of her parents whose baby girl was taken by the witch. The witch has tamed wild creatures to keep her garden safe from intruders, until one day the wife's craving for the Rampion tempts the husband to steal it...
With a large cast of dancers and children this sensational story creates an unforgettable performance that is both relatable in its emotions and fantastical in its design.
Full of fight, passion and longing, this beloved must-see fairytale brings together a collection of world-class collaborators; former Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, award-winning composer Murray Gold (Doctor Who; Gentleman Jack; It’s A Sin) and Michele Clapton, award-winning Costume Designer (Game of Thrones; The Crown; Mamma Mia). The score is performed by Northern Sinfonia.
This performance includes a 20 minute interval.
