Relive the gothic brilliance of Edward Scissorhands as the endearing story is brought to life on stage at Sadler's Wells.
This ballet has been devised, choreographed and directed by the multi-talented Matthew Bourne and stars Dominic North and Liam Mower. The show takes its distinctive visual cues from the acclaimed Tim Burton film, with beautifully dark fairytale visuals colliding with life in suburban USA.
Following the plot of its big screen counterpart, Edward Scissorhands tells the moving story of a boy who has been created with only scissors for hands. Left vulnerable and having to look after himself as an outcast, his life is changed when he stumbles into an unlikely romance. But can such an odd character find happiness in the straight-laced society that he finds himself in?
Featuring a brilliantly evocative score from film composer genius Danny Elfman, some truly amazing visuals and dazzling choreography, this outstanding piece of theatre more than does justice to Burton's original material.
