A live performance screened directly from the main stage of the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, this is the world premiere of Liam Scarlett’s new full-length ballet, inspired by Mary Shelley’s Gothic masterpiece.

 

English choreographer Liam Scarlett danced with The Royal Ballet until retiring in the 2012/13 season to focus on his choreographic career. As The Royal Ballet’s first Artist in Residence, this season he has created this full-length narrative ballet, Frankenstein, in collaboration with composer Lowell Liebermann.

 

Kevin O’Hare, Director of The Royal Ballet, says of Frankenstein, “… I think that Liam will bring it to life for us in so many ways. There will be the macabre and the Gothic but there also is a love story in there.”

Please note that the subject matter would be best suited to an audience age of 12+
