BalletLORENT ‘s award-winning team who brought you Rapunzel and Snow White are back with an original adaptation 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?’

Rumpelstiltskin is the story of the outsider shunned for being different. He is the original super mutant, and fairytale X-man. ‘…the spirit of his mother was with him always…her love for him was so strong that the boy learned to turn ordinary things into gold.’

A story of love, obsession, grief and reconciliation in a show made as much for adults as it is for children. With a score by Doctor Who composer Murray Gold, costumes designed by Michele Clapton (Game of Thrones), narration by actor Ben Crompton (Game of Thrones), set design by Phil Eddolls, and lighting design by Malcolm Rippeth and Michael Morgan, this is dance theatre for 21st century family audiences.
