Scottish Ballet: A Streetcar Named Desire
Scottish Ballet is one of Sadler's Wells' mosr popualr visiting companies. Its repertoire includes new versions of the classics, seminal works from the 20th century modern ballet canon, signature pieces by current choreographers and new commissions. Returning in Spring 2015, they present their take on one of Tennessee Williams' most famous plays, A Streetcar Named Desire. Set in the stifling heat of New Orleans, fading Southern Belle Blanche DuBois moves in with her sister Stella and her brutish husband Stanley in an attempt to flee her troubled past. But unconvinced by her pretensions and delusions of granduer, Stanley sets out to destroy her. Set to a specially commissioned jazz-inspired score by award winning composer Peter Salem, Scottish Ballet have created an arresting fusion of drama and dance in collaboration with American theatre and film director Nancy Meckler and international choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa.
