Scottish Ballet returned to the USA in May 2017 with its multi award-winning production of A Streetcar Named Desire.

Marking the 70th anniversary year of Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play, A Streetcar Named Desire will receive its west coast premiere at the University of California, Berkeley before being performed at The Music Center in Los Angeles.

This vibrant take on the classic tale, A Streetcar Named Desire was born through collaboration with theatre and film director Nancy Meckler and international choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa is a powerful infusion of drama and dance.

Trying to leave a troubled past behind her, fading southern belle Blanche DuBois moves into her sister Stella’s New Orleans apartment. Stella’s brutish husband Stanley sees that Blanche is not what she appears to be, and sets out to destroy her...

The performance lasts approximately two hours including one 20 minute interval.

‘They almost had to hose down the audience at intermission of Scottish Ballet’s A Streetcar Named Desire at the Harris Theater in Chicago on Thursday night. Erik Cavallari’s Stanley had just had make-up sex with Sophie Martin’s Stella, and choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s imaginative way with the erotic pas de deux had everyone hot and bothered.’
