Ballet brilliant: The Snow Queen making tracks for The Core

Solihull Editorial 19th Jun, 2021   0

CLASSICAL ballet is coming to The Core in Solihull when Ballet Theatre UK brings Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale The Snow Queen to the borough.

It’s the story that inspired the smash hit movie Frozen and this production will be performed to a glorious and magical score, with beautifully hand crafted costumes and a glittering stage set.

Ballet Theatre UK was founded in 2008 by artistic director Christopher Moore and has fast become one of the best-loved touring ballet companies in the UK.

Christopher is establishing himself as an innovative choreographer and he is gaining an excellent reputation, the company being listed as the Critic’s Choice in the Independent newspaper as one of the best ballet companies touring the UK.

Already performing to sell out audiences across the country this fantastic troupe of international dancers will be bringing their production of the great British classic, The Snow Queen to Solihull.

He said: “Ballet Theatre UK is a mid-scale, quality, classical dance company performing to regional venues with a bold and unique approach to creating new theatre productions and a wish to raise the awareness of dance.

“I danced professionally for over a decade subsequently becoming more involved with choreography, so it was a natural progression for me to establish Ballet Theatre UK to showcase my own interpretations of popular classical ballets.

” I’ve taken traditional ballets, which to some people have become museum pieces, and brought them up-to-date for the modern audience and engaging our audiences with a passion and energy that I hope is inspiring.

“The dancers bring much to the company and I am able create choreography which best shows their techniques.”

And for those who are ballet novices, he said: “I had a retired gentleman approach me after one of our shows who said that he had never been to a ballet before and was so pleased he had now done so, having enjoyed it immensely.

“I think it should be considered as one of life’s experiences; you’ll never know till you try it.

“A live show with a high visual content and rousing music will always set the heart beating faster!”

The Snow Queen is at The Core on Tuesday, October 26 and tickets are £16 / £15 from the box office on 0121 704 6962.
