Girl from the North Country

Celebrated playwright Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer) boldly reimagines the legendary songs of Bob Dylan, like you’ve never heard them before, in Girl From The North Country. A heart-breaking and universal story about family and love, hailed by the Observer as the 'NO.1 THEATRE SHOW OF THE YEAR'.

It’s 1934 in the heartland of America and we meet a group of wayward souls who cross paths in a time-weathered guesthouse. Standing at a turning point in their lives, they realize nothing is what it seems. But as they search for a future, and hide from the past, they find themselves facing unspoken truths about the present.

Now audiences in the UK have the chance to experience this 'magnificent' (Standard), 'astonishing' (Guardian) and 'piercingly beautiful' (Independent) production brought vividly to life by an extraordinary company of actors and musicians.

Russian State Ballet of Siberia - Romeo and Juliet

Russian State Ballet of Siberia - Snow Maiden

Shakespeare’s tale of primal passion and timeless tragedy is brought to life by Prokofiev’s soaring score, set in bustling Renaissance Verona and with an emotionally charged choreography that befits the world’s greatest love story. From the grandeur of the masked ball to the intimacy of the lovers’ balcony, this star-crossed story of duels, bitter family feuds and love that cannot be, is unmissable.

The critics said, ***"Colourful costumes, fantastic setting and amazing ballet"***

Formed in 1981, the Russian State Ballet of Siberia has quickly established itself as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and unusual depth. The soloists and corps de ballet are superb, and never fail to delight audiences with their breath-taking physical ability and dazzling costumes.

Sergei Bobrov Artistic Director

Anatoly Tchepurnoi Music Director and Chief Conductor

***"It is always a pleasure to bring the unique traditions of Russian Ballet to British audiences. Touring across the UK with a full company of dancers as well as highly skilled musicians is always exciting, for me, it is very special to have the power of a symphony orchestra bringing the choreography to life on stage."*** Sergei Bobrov

From Odile, the temptress in black tulle as she seduces the Prince by spinning with captivating precision to the spellbound purity of the swan queen, Odette as she flutters with emotional intensity, the dual role of Odette/Odile is one of ballet’s most unmissable technical challenges.

The critics said, ***"The production is a triumph"***

The Edinburgh Playhouse

Built as a "super cinema" in 1929, the category A-listed building has had a turbulent history, changing hands many times before claiming its place as one of the UK's key venues for post-West End tours in the late-1980s. With a capacity of over 3000 on three levels, it is Britain's largest theatre, attracting coach parties from substantial distances away. From the front, it is hard to get a sense of the Edinburgh Playhouse's scale, but inside, you start to appreciate how much architect John Fairweather capitalised on the steeply sloping site to come up with a design that could accommodate so many. Today the building, which has five bars and many period features still intact, programmes a broad range of entertainment, from popular musicals such as Les Miserables and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to comedians such as Dara O'Briain and Ross Noble; and from big name music acts such as Bob Dylan and Kenny Rogers to high-prestige dance productions in the Edinburgh International Festival.

The Edinburgh theatre scene beyond the Fringe

20 Sep 2018

If you're arriving in Edinburgh in September, you're likely to be greeted by a litany of old Fringe flyers, with the occasional Festival poster still tacked up on a wall. But don't for a second think this means that Edinburgh's stages are winding down…
