Theatre Preview: Wuthering Heights, 11 – 13 March, Festival Theatre, Edinburgh

7 Feb

Northern Ballet Theatre’s Wuthering Heights returns to Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre from Thursday 11 to Saturday 13 March.

A creative collaboration between composer Claude-Michel Schönberg and NBT Artistic Director David Nixon, the production is inspired by Emily Bronte’s 1847 novel.

The ballet was created in 2002 when Claude-Michel Schönberg, known throughout the musical-theatre world for his West End hits Les Miserables, Miss Saigon and Martin Guerre, made contact with David Nixon within weeks of his arrival at NBT.

One of the greatest love stories in the world, the ballet focuses on the powerful bond that grows between Catherine Earnshaw and the foundling Heathcliff; their lives inexorably linked for eternity in a darkly haunting tale, as bleak and beautiful as the Yorkshire moors that surround them.

As ever, full details are up on the Festival Theatre website.
