Ballet Preljocaj - Snow White description
One of France's most successful choreographers, Angelin Preljocaj returns to Sadler's Wells with his award-winning 2008 adaption of the Brothers Grimm fairytale, Snow White. Performed by the company of 25 dancers, this contemporary ballet is set to extracts from Gustav Mahler's symphonies and showcases spectacular costumes designed by fashion icon Jean Paul Gaultier.
The classic story of the wicked queen who sets out to destroy her rival is told through Preljocaj's characteristically physical choreography, while Thierry Leproust's dark and dramatic sets transport the audience to a fairytale world of magic, drama and romance.
Since founding Ballet Preljocaj in 1985, Angelin Preljocaj has created 45 choreographic works, ranging from solos to larger formations. The company performs internationally and at home in France where it is recognised as one of the country's leading dance companies.
