Scottish Ballet: Highland Fling
Director & choreography: Matthew Bourne
Music: La Sylphide - Herman Severin Løvenskjold performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra
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.

What the Press say
This is one of the funniest, funkiest, most irresistibly infectious ballets I have ever had the delight to sit through.
