Description

Our lively adaptation of the legendary Scots poem by Robert Burns begins in the local tavern. After a raucous ale-fuelled night, Tam stumbles across a terrifying scene of witches and ghostly creatures dancing bewitchingly in Auld Alloway Kirk. Tam yells out, and a frantic chase begins… This story ranges from comedic moments to eerie intensity. It is accompanied by atmospheric music, including Saint-Saëns and Mendelssohn. Edinburgh Ballet Theatre is a local amateur company that boasts a diversity of dancers. Our raison d’être is to promote inclusion in ballet by giving adult dancers a chance to perform.
