Leaving a trail of crumbs across Scotland...
This year we will take our specially adapted version of a big ballet, Wee Hansel & Gretel, on a nationwide tour to Isle of Lewis, Ullapool, Glasgow, Shetland, Orkney, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Greenock, Inverness, and Dundee.
To make this possible, we are delighted to continue our partnership with Loganair as Official Airline Sponsor for this tour of Wee Hansel & Gretel.
Audiences will join Hansel & Gretel as they go on an adventure deep into the woods… Along the way they’ll meet a beguiling Witch and her mysterious raven, before arriving in an enchanted gingerbread house filled with dancing sweet treats and toys that come to life. This specially adapted 50-minute show is the perfect way for young children aged 3–8 years and their families to discover the magic of ballet.
Originally choreographed by CEO/Artistic Director Christopher Hampson in 2013, dancers from Scottish Ballet will perform in this well-known fairytale alongside talented students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s BA in Modern Ballet.
