Schaufuss gets Satisfaction from Stones

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 21 April 2008

A dance show set to the back catalogue of The Rolling Stones comes to the Apollo this summer, from 28 August (press night 29 August) for a limited season until 8 September.

The show, entitled Satisfaction, is created by Danish choreographer and former director of English National Ballet Peter Schaufuss and performed by 25 dancers from his company. Neither ballet nor musical, the show is described as a ‘dancical’ in which a different dance is choreographed to each hit single, telling its own story. Schaufuss describes the new show as “a vibrant and fascinating multimedia experience of dance, music and light which capture the audience”.

Satisfaction’s soundtrack comprises 24 of The Rolling Stones’s hits including Get Off My Cloud, Sympathy For The Devil, Ruby Tuesday, Paint It Black, Wild Horses and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.

The staging at the Apollo also features caricatures of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood and Charlie Woods by Gerald Scarfe, The Sunday Times cartoonist.

Schaufuss has created 17 productions since establishing The Peter Schaufuss Company in Denmark in 1997 and has previously tackled the back catalogues of The Beatles, Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley. He courted controversy in 2005 by creating a ballet about the life of Diana, Princess Of Wales.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
