Object of Desire
It is nowadays a very rare treat to see Scottish Ballet in our part of the United Kingdom so we must make the most of them when they do come. They have already danced The Nutcracker in Newcastle and they are bringing A Streetcar Named Desire to Sadler's Wells for three performances at the end of this month and the beginning of next.
They are then taking it to the USA for much of May visiting racking up the air miles between Chicago, Texas, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Washington DC though curiously not New Orleans where the ballet is set.
My appetite for the ballet has been whetted by the conversation between Christopher Hampson and Eve Mutso in the A Streetcar Named Desire Uncut. Do watch it.
