Monday 27th February: Panta Rei Dance Theatre

7.30 £10/£5

Lullaby presents three men to the audience who, through dance, demonstrate their power, strength, energy and also their aggression and humour. Accompanied by a beautiful live music counterpoint featuring piano and cello, the relationship men have with each other is played out through two pieces both of which are choreographed by women. The dancers are at the peak of their profession and explode with energy, verve, dexterity and fluidity throughout.

The evening will leave audiences breathless, thoughtful and stimulated through a rich experience. During the interval the musicians will continue to play offering an additional dimension to the evening.




Tuesday 28 February – ROH: Live Ballet THE SLEEPING BEAUTY

7pm £11/£10

A perennial delight and a much-loved classic, The Royal Ballet’s The Sleeping Beauty combines the best of classical ballet, with all its charms and virtuosity, splendid music and talented dancers.

First choreographed to Tchaikovsky’s great musical score by Marius Petipa in Russia in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty has wonderful ensembles, solos including the Rose Adage as Princess Aurora meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess. The Royal Ballet’s landmark staging was

revived for the Company’s 75th anniversary celebrations in 2006.

The designs by Oliver Messell, one of the greatest stage designers of the 20th century, were restored and updated for this production by Peter Farmer. The rich evocations of the baroque opulence of a royal court, the panoramic journey of the prince to the overgrown castle and the colourful characters in this famous fairytale make this Sleeping Beauty a spectacle like no other.
