Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes
King’s Lynn Corn Exchange is delighted to welcome award winning company, Ballet Cymru, as they present an extraordinary vision. Two stories from the mind of the most popular storyteller in the world, Roald Dahl on Thursday 9th June.
Roald Dahl was born and grew up in Cardiff, and to celebrate the centenary of this famous author, two of his hugely popular stories are coming home to Wales in ballet adaptations. Ballet Cymru has been granted permission from The Dahl Foundation to produce two works based on sections of the wonderful Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs.
This outstanding classical ballet was choreographed by Darius James and Amy Doughty, inspired by the outstanding and internationally recognised musical scores by composer Paul Patterson. It features original choreography, animated costumes and stunning sets.
With the support of the Dahl Foundation, in 2012 the production toured throughout the UK including Sadler’s Wells, where Roald Dahl’s wife Felicity and Donald Sturrock, Dahl’s biographer, were in attendance. With costumes by designer Steve Denton and a stunning lighting design by John Bishop, this is a performance ‘where many wonderful surprises await you!’.
