Scottish Ballet unveils 2015 season of Scottish arts

Date Posted: 19/12/2014

Three world premieres and a European premiere are the highlights of the next year for Scottish Ballet.

The Scottish Ballet has always had an ethos of innovation. In the past two years the company has commissioned 21 new works, including nine world premieres. And the 2015 programme looks set to be no different.

In April, a new version of Swan Lake will make its debut, touring around theatres in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness and Newcastle.

The brainchild of award-winning choreographer David Dawson, the ballet will tell the timeless story of Swan Lake in a choreographic language that’s relevant to the 21st century.

In June, the Scottish Ballet will premiere another new work at the Dance International Festival in Glasgow. The piece has yet to be named, but it will be created by choreographer Marc Brew.

For dance lovers who can’t make it to Scotland, meanwhile, there’s a production of A Streetcar Named Desire, which will come to Sadler’s Wells in London in March.

This production was nominated for an Olivier award, and won the South Bank Award for Best Classical Choreography when it first went on tour.
