Theatre at its best comes in many forms and dance productions have an appeal that crosses every conceivable boundary.
This autumn we are proud to present the work of three amazing companies.
English National Ballet swash-buckles their way into MKT with Le Corsaire, a ‘rollicking rom- com’ of a ballet, South Africa’s award-winning choreographer, Dada Masilo, brings her fearless re-imagining of the iconic classic, Giselle and BALLETBOYZ present a brand new double bill of exciting and original work.
Milton Keynes Theatre is one of only six venues in the UK lucky enough to host Glyndebourne Tour 2019. This year, the company is proud to present the next generation of opera stars in three diverse and magical works by Donizetti, Verdi and Handel. If you’ve never tried it, make 2019 the year that you discover the power of opera.
You’re never too young to enjoy live theatre if the show is right and when it’s Zog, the dragon, who’s bumped, burned and roared his way into town, you can rest assured that even the littlest of people will love the whole experience.
With an amazing line-up of one night shows including comedy from Russell Kane and Frank Skinner, tribute acts that pay homage to the likes of Bowie, The Beatles, Abba and Elvis, an evening with BAFTA award-winning Jane McDonald and hot stuff from The Dreamboys, this anniversary autumn season at Milton Keynes Theatre is certainly enough to keep the dark nights of winter away.
Christmas may be the last thing on your mind at the moment but we are so looking forward to our spectacular seasonal family entertainment Aladdin, we just had to share our excitement with you! Starring Joe Pasquale as Wishee Washee and Lee Mead as Aladdin, it’s going to be everything you could wish for in a panto. But tickets are selling fast so hop aboard the magic carpet and book yours now!
A little bit further ahead, you can look forward to spring 2020 and a sparkling, packed season of shows that includes the heart-warming stage adaptation of The Snowman, the National Theatre’s, An Inspector Calls and Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film, The Red Shoes.
Mischief Theatre returns with another catastrophic disaster, Peter Pan Goes Wrong, and then there are four more fantastic musicals to brighten up the dark days of winter: On Your Feet, Once, The King and I and We Will Rock You.
Finally, we are proud to present the world stage premiere of Kay Mellor’s murderous thriller, Band of Gold, and enormously pleased to welcome back Welsh National Opera with a trio of operas that are steeped in revenge, temptation and suspense!
Don’t even try to resist!
