A Streetcar Named Desire

Nancy Meckler and Annabelle Lopez Ochoa (2012)

In the 65th anniversary year of Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Scottish Ballet presented vibrant new take on A Streetcar Named Desire, collaborating with theatre and film director Nancy Meckler and international choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa to create a powerful infusion of drama and dance.  

Trying to leave a troubled past behind her, fading southern belle Blanche DuBois moves into her sister Stella’s New Orleans apartment. Stella’s brutish husband Stanley sees that Blanche is not what she appears to be, and sets out to destroy her...
