From the award-winning team who made Rapunzel and Snow White, balletLORENT presents for family audiences the world premiere of this beloved tale Rumpelstiltskin, retold by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy and directed by Liv Lorent.

“What will you give me if I spin straw into gold for you?”

Full of action and humour this emotionally rich fairytale is set in the rural world of sheep, straw, wool and spinning where the alchemist, Rumpelstiltskin is outcast until he is revealed to be “the true prince that he was”.

With a score by Doctor Who composer Murray Gold, costumes designed by Michele Clapton (Game of Thrones), and narration by actor Ben Crompton, this is dance theatre for 21st century audiences.
