Scottish Ballet will mark the 25th anniversary of the death of Scottish born choreographer Sir Kenneth MacMillan with a recreation of his early narrative work Le Baiser de la F?e. Using Stravinsky's score (itself a homage to Tchaikovsky) MacMillan reveals the darker depths of Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tale The Ice Maiden. Le Baiser de la F?e was originally created in 1960 and has had only one revival since. Scottish Ballet will be working with the Benesh Notator, Diana Curry and designer Gary Harris to recreate the original production. In complete musical contrast is Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. Scottish Ballet's own production by Artistic Director, Christopher Hampson, uses only three dancers to convey a present day story of two brothers destined for different paths to enlightenment. Hampson has created a version that is relevant to our time; his The Rite of Spring is a brutal and physical response to the Stravinsky score. An exploration of rivalry, betrayal and sacrifice, Scottish Ballet's The Rite of Spring is at times violent, intense and thought-provoking.
Tough girls and pretty boys living life in the margins, dreaming about being at the centre. This bespoke extract from the full-length production explores the transformative power of beauty, created out of whatever is on the bedroom floor. Bringing us into a space of fluid identity, the dancers experiment, seduce and philosophise through their bodies, clothing and ideas. Velvet Petal is inspired by the life-cycle of the monarch butterfly and Robert Mapplethorpe's polaroids and is set to a fresh dance punk score.
The Snow Princess wishes to leave her winter forest to live with humans. However, she is unable to feel any emotions. The temptation to know what love is becomes too strong and she asks her mother (Spring) to grant her wish. As she finally experiences the passion she melts under the sun's fatal rays.
One of ballet's most famous works with some of its best known music. It is Siegfried's birthday and his mother gives him a crossbow and an ultimatum to get married! After the party and finding himself alone he goes hunting. The evil magician Rothbart (half man half bird) keeps beautiful women as swans on the lake - but by night they resume human form. Siegfried is bewitched by Odette, a Princess and one of the Swans. She explains their plight to Siegfried and says the spell can only be broken by someone who'll love her truly for ever. He swears to do so but Odette returns to being a swan as Rothbart's powers are so strong. Siegfried returns to the palace and his mother presents him with a string of women from whom to chose his bride - Rothbart arrives with his daughter Odile disguised as Odette and Siegfried agrees to marry her - only then realising his mistake as Odile reviles him for breaking his vow to Odette. Siegfried returns to the lake and begs Odette to forgive him - then fights Rothbart whom he kills - and the swans are released from the spell.
