To kickstart our 50th anniversary year, Scottish Ballet presents a fresh double bill fizzing with energy and guaranteed to send you home smiling.

Artist in Residence, choreographer Sophie Laplane premieres her latest work, Dextera. Her trademark quirky style promises a tour de force of creative ideas, set to the music of Mozart, performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.

Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Elite Syncopations is an irresistible carnival of colourful characters. This much-loved whirl of 1920s dancehall glitz is set to a series of Scott Joplin’s tunes, performed live by an onstage ragtime band.
