This ‘glorious revival’ (The Telegraph) is brought to life by acclaimed Curve Artistic Director Nikolai Foster (Annie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and two-time Olivier Award-winning choreographer Stephen Mear (Mary Poppins).
A timeless romantic comedy to warm hearts of all ages, WHITE CHRISTMAS features the classic songs Blue Skies, Sisters and the most famous festive song of all… White Christmas.

The production is an adaptation of the 1948 film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, which tells the story of a ballerina called Victoria Page who joins an established ballet company. The film is in turn based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale.
Directed and choreographed by Bourne and set to the music of Bernard Herrman, the production won the Olivier Awards for best choreographer and best entertainment in 2017.

ROMEO & JULIET BALLET – 29th August 2019
A group of us left Leigh at 10:00am to see Matthew Bourne’s ballet version of Romeo & Juliet at Saddlers Wells London. If you have ever seen anything by Matthew, you will know to expect the unexpected and in this regard we were not disappointed. We were treated to his version of Shakespeare’s story all taking place within an asylum (but at least the asylum was in Verona). It was beautifully performed by some wonderfully talented young dancers to the live Prokofiev music. The story no longer involves warring families but brutal guards, oppressive rules and a system that is just bad. The two lead dancers manage to perform several minutes of ballet with lips locked in a lengthy snog whilst twisting, turning and rolling around the stage – incredible skill and agility. And again a Matthew Bourne twist in as much as it finishes exactly as it starts.
