To celebrate our 50th anniversary in 2019, Scottish Ballet launched an ambitious Five in Five Campaign - to commission and stage five new full-length ballets in five years, one for every decade of our company’s history. This is a huge undertaking, but one that brings rich rewards.
‘We have the talent, we have the drive and we have the experience to create something truly special’Christopher Hampson, CEO/Artistic Director
New work challenges and motivates our dancers, attracts the very best artists to Scotland and inspires the next generation of young dancers. We will also stimulate and nourish our audiences and communities.
