Matthew Bourne has had a fresh stab at his 2005 take on Tim Burton’s ultimate outsider’s tale for this year’s Sadler’s Wells Christmas offering. There is some new choreography, music and design, but the essentials remain unchanged: this is Bourne showing off his masterful storytelling skills for a great piece of entertainment.
It's Christmas, so London's dance companies are putting their twinkliest toes forward and staging a beautiful array of yuletide shows. If you want to see a festive classic like 'Swan Lake' or the immortal ‘Nutcracker’, you're in luck, because these tutu-tastic trad ballet spectaculars dominate the bill at big venues like the Coliseum and the Royal Opera House. With dazzlingly well-drilled choruses and stunningly glitzy visuals, they're the perfect intro to the wonderful world of ballet. But there's also quirkier Christmas fare at London's smaller dance venues, and they'll be added to this page as they're announced.
Read on to book tickets to a London dance show that'll inspire you to leap off the sofa and into the yuletide spirit.
