Thank you to all those who have helped us re-stage a lost production. You will forever be a part of the magic of The Fairy’s Kiss.

2017 marks the 25th Anniversary of the death of the UKs most celebrated 20th century choreographer, Scottish-born Sir Kenneth MacMillan.

To mark this important milestone, Scottish Ballet will remount one of his seminal works, The Fairy’s Kiss (Le Baiser de la Fée) – a one act fairy-tale ballet with music by the great Igor Stravinsky.

The Fairy’s Kiss was first created in 1960 and has only had one UK revival, in 1986. It is fitting that Scotland’s national dance company can celebrate its Scottish heritage, rich with creative talent, by bringing one of MacMillan’s most exquisite works back to life.

This new production will ensure we can continue to experience and appreciate Scotland’s dance heritage, while reviving a magical ballet for a new generation.

Along with re-staging the choreography, new sets and costumes are being designed and created. At the request of Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Widow, Lady MacMillan, these will be designed by Gary Harris, designer of Scottish Ballet’s Hansel & Gretel.


Scottish Ballet is extremely grateful for the support it has received from the following organisations and individuals:

  • The recreation of The Fairy’s Kiss has been generously supported by The Linbury Trust.
  • Significant investment has also been received from Geoff & Mary Ball, Kate & Gavin Gemmell, The Turtleton Trust, Iain McGlashan Charitable Trust and the Viewforth Trust.
  • Further generous donations from The Binks Trust, Fred Hay, Juliette Paton, Bill and Mary Scott, Jan Munro and other anonymous donors.
