What's On > Birmingham Royal Ballet - Far from the Madding Crowd

Wed 20 - Sat 23 Jun 2012 (ARCHIVED LISTING)
Passions run out of control in this balletic adaption of Thomas Hardy’s famous novel by David Bintley, Company Director and award-winning creator of the Company’s huge Christmas hit, Cinderella. An enrapturing story of lust, deceit and murder, with one woman at the centre of it all.
 
Bathsheba Everdene sends ripples through the lives of three men as they compete for her love. The dependable farm-hand Gabriel Oak, the dignified but obsessive William Boldwood and the dashing but deceitful Sergeant Francis Troy, all vie for the heart of the woman they love… Bathsheba’s complex relationships with all three leads one to death, one to madness and the other to true love.
 
Adorned in stunningly detailed period costumes and sets by designer Hayden Griffin, and with an evocative score by Paul Reade, composer of the Company’s Hobson’s Choice, Far from the Madding Crowd makes a very welcome return to the stage. If you are a fan of the worlds of Gone with the Wind, Cranford or The Forsyte Saga, this is a ballet for you.
