A Riverbank Production

Dr Doolittle

A Panto for the Easter Holidays!

A show from Riverbank Productions telling the story of Dr John Doolittle MD whose parrot, Polynesia teaches him how to speak to animals!

Of course, this enables him to become a first-class animal doctor. One day a monkey from Africa arrives and asks him if he can journey to his homeland to cure a colony of monkeys from a dreadful disease. So, accompanied by his trusty friends, Dab-Dab the duck, Gub Gub the pig, Too Too the owl and Jip the dog, Dr Doolittle embarks on an unforgettable journey to Africa and the adventure begins. Some of the animals in the production are played by puppets and others by the actors. As well as all the animals and the doctor himself, you may expect to meet such characters as Princess Bumpo, some swarthy pirates and a short-sighted horse! Featuring new songs, especially composed for the show plus sing-along favourites, humour and lots of joining in.

Dr Doolittle is the ideal show for all the family and particularly for children aged 5 to 10.

The Royal Ballet

Within the Golden Hour

A New Work from Choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui

Flight Pattern

The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today’s leading choreographers.

Christopher Wheeldon’s Within the Golden Hour is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset.

Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration.

Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created on The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.

Swan Lake

Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake returns with a fresh look for the 21st century.

Retaining the iconic elements of the original production loved by millions around the world, Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (Set & Costumes) and Paule Constable (Lighting) will create an exciting re-imagining of the classic production.

Thrilling, audacious, witty and emotive, this Swan Lake is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered conventions, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm.

Collecting over thirty international accolades including an Olivier Award in the UK and three Tonys on Broadway, Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.

Romeo and Juliet
Tuesday 11 June7.15pm

The Royal Ballet

Romeo and Juliet

Composer Sergei Prokofiev

Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end.
Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.
