Event Description

Performing in the Queen’s Hall Theatre for the first time, is the London Ballet Company, one of the top ballet companies in the country. Featuring not one, but TWO of their latest productions – ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Poppy’.

See the story of Cinderella reimagined and performed with physicality and imagination, then experience a new, untold story of ‘Poppy’.(Description below)

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.

Perfect for the whole family and an evening you will always remember!
