5 things you need to know about Elves & the Shoemaker
1. Our ballet is inspired by the 1806 Brothers Grimm story. The tale has been adapted many times, including a version by The Muppets featuring Kermit The Frog as the shoemaker, who’s saved by a group of entertainers (The Elvises) who, naturally, make only blue suede shoes.
Sue Newby, Learning Officer at the Brontë Parsonage Museum in West Yorkshire, has written a fantastic guest blog about the novel Wuthering Heights ahead of the return of our adaptation of Emily Brontë’s masterpiece.
