Quadrophenia, a Mod Ballet

Author(s): Pete Townshend, choreographer Paul Roberts Company: Sadler’s Wells and Universal Music UK

In 1973, guitar smashing rock star Pete Townshend wrote Quadrophenia. Recorded by The Who, it quickly became an iconic and multi-million selling album. Quadrophenia defined a generation and in 1979 inspired the feature film of the same name.​

Now it’s back, this time as a dance production—Quadrophenia, a Mod Ballet—introducing new audiences to troubled mod Jimmy’s story while remaining true in spirit to the original. Quadrophenia is steeped in the mythology of the 1960s—sharp suits, soul music, vespas and parkas—but its themes of lost youth, rebellion, the search for belonging and hunger for social change are just as urgent today.
