We asked Twitter to tell us which production from the last few years we should post an image from, in six minutes there were six different titles so here’s six photos from six productions… Cleopatra, The Great Gatsby, Beauty & the Beast, Madame Butterfly, The Nutcracker & Wuthering Heights.
Dancers include Hironao Takahashi (Octavian), Victoria Sibson (Myrtle), Ashley Dixon (The Beast), Martha Leebolt (Beauty), Georgina May (Kate and Cathy), Tobias Batley (Pinkerton and Heathcliff) and John Hull.
Photos Bill Cooper and Merlin Hendy.
We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams. - Anon
