Scottish Ballet Double Bill

Scottish Ballet Double Bill

At Sadler's Wells

Price from € 70.30

After 2009's hugely successful 40th anniversary performances at Sadler's Wells, Scottish Ballet returns with an atmospheric double bill originally unveiled at this year's Edinburgh International Festival. Kenneth MacMillan's Song of the Earth was created for Stuttgart Ballet in 1965 at the invitation of Artistic Director John Cranko. Set to a live performance of Mahler's song cycle Das Lied von der Erde, the lyrics to which were translated from a collection of eighth century Chinese poems offering bittersweet reflections on human emotion, Song of the Earth explores man's struggle to accept mortality.
