Experience the bold, sensual power of Igor Stravinsky’s scores, performed by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.

A programme of two dramatically contrasting ballets – The Fairy’s Kiss (Le Baiser de la Fée) and The Rite of Spring (Le Sacre du Printemps).

THE FAIRY'S KISS (LE BAISER DE LA FÉE)
Scottish Ballet will mark the 25th anniversary of the death of Scottish born choreographer Sir Kenneth MacMillan with a re-staging of his early narrative work The Fairy’s Kiss (Le Baiser de la Fée), which will feature a stunning new set and costumes designed by Gary Harris. The ballet is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Ice Maiden and tells the story of a boy destined for immortality after being kissed at birth by a fairy. The Fairy’s Kiss (Le Baiser de la Fée) was originally created in 1960 and has had only one revival since.

THE RITE OF SPRING (LE SACRE DU PRINTEMPS)
Feel the raw energy of the score – and the anguish of moral conflict, brought to an end through violent sacrifice.
Choreographed by Scottish Ballet’s Artistic Director Christopher Hampson, this ballet was widely acclaimed following its 2013 performance at the Edinburgh International Festival.
