Matthew Bourne's Highland FlingInternationally renowned director and currently London’s hottest choreographer with Mary Poppins, four time Olivier Award and double Tony Award winner, Matthew Bourne returns with an acclaimed reworking of the classic romantic ballet La Sylphide. Following the sell-out success of Swan Lake, Play Without Words and Nutcracker!, this brand new production, re-choreographed and totally re-designed, is bigger and even better than his original 1994 version – now with double the number of cast members.

A compelling romance, Highland Fling follows James, a young Glaswegian who is captured and ensnared by an unearhly siren. Intoxicated and infatuated by her wild and exotic ways, the beautiful Sylph taunts and teases, leading him into an enchanting and mysterious world beyond the mean streets and nightclubs of Glasgow.

A gossamer, gothic fable of winged fairies and kilted laddies, this mystical and magical adaptation is packed with Bourne’s trademark wit, sparkle and humous.
