Helen Pickett begins work on The Crucible

Choreographer Helen Pickett has returned to Scottish Ballet this week to begin work on her world premiere, The Crucible. A chilling tale of the Salem witch trials and the hysteria that unfolded around them, this ballet will captivate you with its spellbinding sensuality and capacity to provoke and question.

Helen Pickett previously worked with Scottish Ballet last year for Dance Odysseys at the Edinburgh International Festival withTrace and another world premiere,The Room. 

The Crucible premieres this autumn and will tour to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness and Aberdeen. Click here to find out more
