A programme inspired by the music of one of the most distinctive and influential composers of the 20th Century, Igor Stravinsky, performed by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.

The Fairy's Kiss (Le Baiser de la Fée)

Scottish Ballet will mark the 25th anniversary of the death of Scottish born choreographer Sir Kenneth MacMillan with a re-staging of his early narrative work The Fairy’s Kiss (Le Baiser de la Fée), which will feature a stunning new set and costumes designed by Gary Harris. The ballet is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Ice Maiden and tells the story of a boy destined for immortality after being kissed at birth by a fairy. The Fairy’s Kiss (Le Baiser de la Fée) was originally created in 1960 and has had only one revival since.

The Rite of Spring (Le Sacre du Printemps)

The Rite of Spring (Le Sacre du Printemps), choreographed by Scottish Ballet’s Artistic Director Christopher Hampson, brings raw physicality to this programme. Featuring only three dancers, it tells the story of two brothers as they grow together, come of age and descend into a violent confrontation.

“This is an intense, uncompromising work that demands your attention.”
