THE Welsh Ballet returns to Stroud with their breathtaking production of The Light Princess at The Cotswold Playhouse on Thursday, November 30 at 7.30pm.

This is a new full length ballet for 2017 with a new score by brilliant Welsh harpist, composer and recording artist Catrin Finch in collaboration with The Riverfront Theatre in Newport.

Stroud Festival has organised the return of the much loved Welsh Ballet to the town, in what promises to be the lightest and brightest dance event of the year.

Using elements of circus and outstanding classical choreography the story draws inspiration from Sleeping Beauty, telling the story of a princess afflicted by a constant weightlessness, unable to get her feet on the ground, until she finds a love that brings her down to earth.

Featuring ground breaking video projections and stunningly vibrant costumes The Light Princess will transport you to a world of laughter, beauty and wonder.

Rick Vick, event organiser for Stroud Festival, said: “We are delighted that The Welsh Ballet are yet again returning to Stroud with this scintillating ballet.”
