Help us to restage a lost production: be part of the magic and help to bring The Fairy’s Kiss back to the stage.

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 originally created in 1960 and has only had one subsequent UK revival in 1986. Therefore it is fitting that Scotland’s national dance company can celebrate its Scottish heritage, rich with creative talent, by providing a unique and rare opportunity to bring one of MacMillan’s most exquisite works back to life.

This new production will also ensure that more dancers, musicians and audiences continue to experience and appreciate exceptional choreography from Scotland’s dance heritage, whilst reviving a magical ballet for a new generation.

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

We need your help to raise £140,000 to design and build new sets and costumes. Please help us to revive and restage this iconic Scottish choreographer’s work.
