Message In A Bottle is inspired by, and set to, the iconic hits of 17-time Grammy Award-winning artist Sting. 

Initially inspired by the singer’s track Desert Rose, the dance-theatre show is said to tell an uplifting and poignant tale. 

It first opened to rave reviews at Sadler’s Wells Peacock Theatre in the West End in January 2020 and began a major UK and worldwide tour in May 2023. Audiences now have another chance to see the show in London as it returns to the Peacock Theatre for a limited run between 4th and 14th October this year. 

Message In A Bottle features electrifying choreography from five-time Olivier Award nominee, Kate Prince whose work includes Some Like it Hip HopInto the Hoods, and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

The production is returning to Peacock Theatre for a limited run in October 2023, more than three years after it premiered there.

The peaceful village of Bebko is alive with joyous celebrations. Suddenly, under attack, everything changes forever. Three siblings, Leto, Mati and Tana, must embark on perilous journeys in order to survive.

“When I first saw Message In A Bottle, I was overwhelmed by all the different styles of dance in the show. What I really didn’t expect was to be so emotionally engaged in the story. Kate’s imaginative story and beautiful choreography has brought my songs to new life.”


It’s set to the iconic hits of Sting including Every Breath You TakeRoxanneWalking On The Moon and more.

Message In A Bottle is a Sadler’s Wells and Universal Music UK production, co-produced by Birmingham Hippodrome and The Lowry, Salford.
