Synopsis

Royal Ballet Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett unveils his innovative new production of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Frankenstein is one of literature's greatest and most popular gothic novels and has been made into countless movies and stage plays. Now, Royal Ballet Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett (Asphodel Meadows, Metamorphosis: Titian) has chosen Mary Shelley's 1818 classic as the basis for his first full-length narrative ballet. Kevin O'Hare, Director of The Royal Ballet, says of Frankenstein: "We all think that we know the story, but I think that Liam will bring it to life for us in so many ways. There will be the macabre and the gothic but there also is a love story in there." For this exciting new production Scarlett returns to the music of Lowell Liebermann, from whom he has commissioned a brand new score.
