Did you know that Scottish Ballet was the first dance company in Europe to offer audio description? Visually impaired audience members are provided with headsets, allowing them to hear the commentary given live by a member of the Scottish Ballet team. As the curtain rises the audio description begins and every step the dancers take on stage is brought to life.

Prior to the described performance, a touch tour offers visually impaired patrons the opportunity to get up close to a selection of costumes and props.

If you book in advance for an audio described performance you will receive a CD containing a brief synopsis of the ballet and detailed descriptions of the characters, costumes and set before attending the show.

When booking your seat please let the box office know that you will be using the audio description facility as the equipment works better in certain seating areas.

Cast lists and programme articles are also available in braille or large print on request. Please contact Lorna Murray on 0141 331 6285 or email education@scottishballet.co.uk.
