ARTHUR MILLER'S DRAMA OF POWER AND PERSECUTION
World Premiere at Edinburgh International Festival in August 2019
The village of Salem stands on the brink.
A teenage girl imagines her future. A marriage is tested. Church bells ring, uniting the community in prayer. These are good people; this could be anywhere. They fear the shadows in the forest, but the real monsters are much closer to home.
You’ll be on the edge of your seat watching this tight-knit society unravel into chaos. Ask yourself: when everything is in the balance, what are you prepared to pay for the truth?
Helen Pickett’s choreography unleashes the emotional force of Miller’s masterpiece, vividly accompanied by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra performing Peter Salem’s haunting new score.
The performance lasts approximately 1 hour 40 minutes including interval.
The Crucible will receive its world premiere in the opening week of the Edinburgh International Festival 2019 - full details will be announced in spring 2019. Tickets are now on sale for performances in Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness in autumn 2019.
