“What will you give me if I spin straw into gold for you?”

balletLORENT’s award-winning team, who brought us Rapunzel and Snow White, return. Full of action and humour, this emotionally rich fairytale is set in the rural world of sheep, straw, wool and spinning wheels where the alchemist, Rumpelstiltskin, is an outcast until he is revealed to be the true prince that he was. Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy casts a spell on the Grimm fairy tale. With a score by composer Murray Gold (Doctor Who), costumes designed by Michele Clapton (Game of Thrones) and narration by actor Ben Crompton, this is spectacular dance theatre to excite and engage audiences of all ages.
