One of France’s most successful choreographers, Angelin Preljocaj went on show with his 25 dancers company at Sadler’s Wells Theatre until last night: they performed his award-winning 2008 adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairytale, Snow White.

This contemporary ballet is set to extracts from Gustav Mahler’s symphonies and showcases spectacular costumes designed by fashion icon Jean Paul Gaultier: the classic story is told through Preljocaj’s delightfully physical choreography and set in Thierry Leproust’s dark and dramatic sets, that transport the audience to a fairytale world of magic, drama and romance.
An absolute delight!
