About the Performance:

Back by popular demand, Scottish Ballet presents their acclaimed production of A Streetcar Named Desire in London, making its highly-anticipated return since 2015, following the success of their sold-out run of Coppélia in 2023.

Set in the sultry ambiance of 1940s New Orleans, the story follows the journey of Blanche DuBois, a fading Southern belle who moves in with her sister Stella. However, Stella's husband Stanley soon unravels Blanche's facade and embarks on a mission to unravel her world.

Scottish Ballet’s innovative approach revitalizes this classic narrative with elegant waltzes in the DuBois family residence, exhilarating lindy jives in a Louisiana hotspot, and powerful duets amidst the simmering tensions of Stella and Stanley's abode.

The Creative Team Behind A Streetcar Named Desire:

Directed by Nancy Meckler and choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, with stunning set and costume designs by Nicola Turner, and a mesmerizing score by Peter Salem (known for The Crucible), performed live by members of the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.

Recognized with accolades such as Outstanding Achievement In Dance at the UK Theatre Awards 2023 and Outstanding Company at the National Dance Awards 2023, Scottish Ballet promises an unmissable theatrical event.
