balletLORENT's award-winning team who brought you Rapunzel and Snow White returns with a new production of this beloved tale Rumpelstiltskin, directed by Liv Lorent and retold by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.
"What will you give me if I spin straw into gold for you?"
Full of action and humour this emotionally rich fairytale is set in a rural world of sheep, straw, wool and spinning where the alchemist, Rumpelstiltskin is outcast until he is revealed to be 'the true prince that he was'.
With a score by Doctor Who composer Murray Gold, costumes designed by Michele Clapton (Game of Thrones), narration by actor Ben Crompton, this is dance theatre for 21st Century family audiences.
Phil Eddolls (set design) and Malcolm Rippeth (lighting design) once again join the world class collaborators team, along with associate lighting designer Michael Morgan, to create a visually stunning setting for Rumpelstiltskin.
"It is a thing of magic and beauty, not so much a cautionary tale but one of hope and reconciliation." David Whetstone, Newcastle Evening Chronicle (****)
"It’s a fitting, sumptuous and beautifully realised production to bring the five years of the trilogy to its culmination and well deserved the enthusiasm and standing ovation with which it was greeted." Peter Latham, British Theatre Guide
"Fabulous show - beautiful to watch, wonderful storytelling and choreography; a very special evening.." Northern Stage Audience Member
