The Royal Ballet’s artist-in-residence Liam Scarlett has become known for ballets that marry highly expressive movement, sophisticated musical response and dark psychological depth. Now he creates his first full-length work for the Royal’s main stage with Frankenstein, a period adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Gothic tale of morality and our craving for love, companionship and understanding. For this new work Scarlett has assembled a number of collaborators. American composer Lowell Liebermann composes a new score and the production is co-produced with the San Francisco Ballet. Enjoy this poignant ballet and classic tale that lives on.
