3. Short on time, long on... everything!
Kenneth MacMillan’s The Fairy’s Kiss only had 33 performances since it was created in 1960. The last of which was in 1986. This is due to one small problem – for a short, one act ballet, it’s large in every other way possible.
The Fairy’s Kiss requires a full orchestra, a full company, and the original production also required a considerably large set. That made it difficult, near impossible, to perform any other works alongside it on the same evening. Thanks to an ingenious new design by Gary Harris and a Company of 40 dancers strong, we hope to keep The Fairy’s Kiss in our touring repertoire for years to come.
