Powerful stuff at HMT

Set to a specially commissioned jazz-inspired score by award-winning composer Peter Salem, Scottish Ballet presents ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ at His Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen.

Trying to leave a troubled past behind her, fading southern belle Blanche Dubois moves into her sister Stella’s New Orleans apartment. Stella’s brutish husband Stanley sees that Blanche is not what she appears to be, and sets out to destroy her.

The Scottish Ballet company continues to push the boundaries of modern ballet in a collaboration with American theatre and film director Nancy Meckler and international choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, creating a powerful infusion of drama and dance.

There will also be free pre-show talks on Thursday, May 3 and Friday, May 4 at 6.30pm in order for you to learn more about the show. An insight will be held on Saturday, May 5 for a glimpse into the work that goes into such a production.

The show runs from Wednesday, May 2 to Saturday, May 5 with tickets priced from £12.50 to £28.50 from 01224 641122.
