Dylan Thomas: A Child's Christmas, Poems and Tiger Eggs


Ballet Cymru will be presenting a new creation, Dylan Thomas: A Child’s Christmas, Poems and Tiger Eggs, inspired by one of Thomas’s most popular works, A Child’s Christmas in Wales. With choreography by Darius James and Amy Doughty, and music by Mason Neely and Cerys Matthews, the new ballet promises to take us on a journey through “snow, cats and melancholy!”  The ballet will come to the Lilian Baylis Studio Theatre in London on 3 & 4 November. Dylan Thomas: A Child’s Christmas, Poems and Tiger Eggs will also tour to Grantham, Cambridge, Teignmouth, Newport, Doncaster, Salisbury, Taunton, Leeds, Bangor, Stroud and Aberystwyth. www.welshballet.co.uk.
