A Streetcar Named Desire
Author(s): Tennessee Williams
Company: Scottish Ballet
Running time: 2h 00min approx
In steamy 1940s New Orleans, fading Southern belle Blanche DuBois moves into her sister Stella’s apartment. Stella’s brutish husband Stanley sees that Blanche is not what she appears to be, and sets out to destroy her...
Scottish Ballet’s production breathes new life into the classic tale, with waltzes at the DuBois family home, lindy jives in a Louisiana nightclub and intense duets in the caged heat of Stella and Stanley’s apartment.
Choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and directed by Nancy Meckler, with set and costume designs by Niki Turner and score by Peter Salem (The Crucible) performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra (mainland performances only).
