Win Tickets to see Strictly Gershwin at the Royal Albert Hall
Derek Deane's glamorous in-the-round dance celebration returns
Friday 13 May 2011
Strictly Gershwin is a dazzling celebration of George Gershwin and the sparkling age of Hollywood music and dance. Gershwin’s sassy tunes, most famously Rhapsody in Blue, An American in Paris, Someone to Watch over Me, The Man I Love, Shall We Dance, I Got Rhythm and Strike up the Band combine with Derek Deane’s sensational choreography to conjure up the silver screen genius of Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gene Kelly.
With over 100 dancers and musicians filling the stage, glitzy cinematic images set the scene for English National Ballet’s fabulous dance spectacular. This glittering in-the-round production recreates the razzmatazz of the big band era and Hollywood musicals, featuring a journey in dance from ballroom to jazz, building to a breathtaking balletic finale.
Strictly Gershwin will be accompanied by a live jazz orchestra in a nostalgic return to the famous big band sound of the forties with a guest star appearance from Olivier-award-winning singer Maria Friedman.
