Matthew Bourne’s Highland Fling: Tuesday April 30th
Highland Fling is a ‘romantic wee ballet’ originally produced in 1994 by Olivier Award winner Matthew Bourne.
Presented exclusively by Scottish Ballet, Matthew Bourne’s Highland Fling is a wonderfully imaginative reworking of the classic romantic ballet La Sylphide with a wickedly wry Scotch twist.
Highland Fling follows the antics of James – a young Scot with sex and love and rock and roll on his mind. Recently married to his beloved Effie, his addiction to excess finds him in the fateful company of a beguiling gothic fairy.
As his love for the strange and beautiful sylph becomes an obsession, he embarks on a fateful journey that takes him from the mean streets and nightclubs of Glasgow into a magical world beyond reality and reason.
“Extravagantly witty” The Independent
“This is one of the funniest, funkiest, most irresistibly infectious ballets I have ever had the delight to sit through” Daily Mail
