Snow Queen - The Loss of Love
The London Ballet Company’s heart-warming tale of love and kindness overcoming adversity has been adapted from the story Snow Queen, by Hans Christian Anderson.
A boy, Kai, is trapped in the land of frozen feelings where the masked and mysterious Snow Queen reigns, hiding from the world in self-imposed exile. There are no emotions here!
Kai’s true friend Gerda, sets out on a quest to find him, led by a strange man in black.
When the two friends are joyfully re-united, their warmth and love for each other melts the Snow Queen’s heart. The power of this love enables her to see beauty in the world and the joy of friendship.

Poppy
The London Ballet Company are marking Remembrance Day - Armistice Day with the much loved production, Poppy.
2014 marked the centenary of the First World War. The war, it was proclaimed, to end all wars! The London Ballet Company’s production starkly portrays the havoc wreaked by global war on ordinary people. Seen through the innocent eyes of the child Poppy, we follow a family struggling to come to terms with the cataclysmic turn of events of 1914, as they seek to do their duty and rally to their nations cause. The turmoil of family life forever changed, innocence lost, Poppy remains, like the flower for whom she was named, a symbol of hope and of remembrance. To this day it is the evocative power of the Poppy which reminds and remonstrates the “civilised” world with loss of life involved in conflict.

Ghost
Choreographed by Guest Choreographer: Rose Alice Larkings

A single soul trapped in between what was and what will be.
The comfort of a friend who accepted her existence, is no more.
Fury comes from being used, treated like a ghost even in life.
The struggle is real, the pain, angst and anger are not.
Weightless, free, insignificant, yet forever remembered, a place into which you disappear.

00 and His 7
There is only 1 secret agent who is suave, debonair, and whose talent for stopping the "bad guy", is world renowned. He is 007. On His Majesty's Secret Service, James Bond must find the diamond necklace thief. Find him and he will uncover the diabolical plot to seize control of the world's financial markets, and bring the affluent countries to their knees.

Eve
In the garden of life the story begins with Eve! The dancers of The London Ballet Company follow the journey of woman from guileless girl, to transitional teenager, and sultry siren. Relationships, petty jealousies and angst; blushing brides, parenthood, and affairs, all are portrayed with sensitivity and humour as we follow this life cycle. Que sera sera!
