Ballet Cymru (formerly Independent Ballet Wales) 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.
The most popular storyteller in the world, Roald Dahl, set to music by outstanding composer Paul Patterson and danced by the incomparable Ballet Cymru. Featuring glorious costumes, amazing dancing, and stunning video projections, this laugh out loud production was a huge hit for Ballet Cymru in 2016 and is an exquisite classical ballet for adults and children alike. Ballet Cymru’s reputation for presenting stunning evenings of dance continues to grow and they return to Malvern after their acclaimed productions DREAM and GISELLE in 2021 and 2022. With innovative design and choreography showcasing amazing dancers from around the world, if you see one ballet this year, make it this one.
