A stunning triple bill presented by this world class ballet company.
Taking inspiration from a medieval poem and woodcut depicting the 'Danse macabre', Dance House was prompted by the early death of a friend and colleague who was a dancer. Despite its light, witty tone, Shostakovich's music has darker resonances, which Bintley fully explores in this poignant re-interpretation of the 'Dance of Death'.
"The Dance House is a little masterpiece: sad, eerie and original." - The Daily TelegraphSlaughter on Tenth Avenue is a crazy tale of a highkicking stripper and a happy-go-lucky hero who literally has to dance for his life. Created as part of the world-famous Rodgers and Hart musical comedy On Your Toes, which follows the adventures of a young American hoofer who joins a famous Russian ballet company, its humour and vitality provide sparkling entertainment.
