In 1981 Robert de Warren created a new version of A Midsummer Night's Dream with production designs by first-time ballet designer Clive Lavagna. His costumes were very modern for the time, with body-suits to allow the audience to admire the dancer's movements, poise and athleticism.
The music used was, of course, Mendelssohn's famous score with additional pieces from his Songs Without Words all arranged by Leonard Salzedo.
Here are Lynn Jezzard as Titania and Martin Gurnett as Oberon, photo by Roger Alexander.
This is the first time in 16 months we've performed The Great Gatsby and we are all excited about reviving the production which finished it's last run at London Sadler's Wells to sell-out performances across the entire week!
On Friday 12 September after that day's performance of Dracula our Artistic Director, David Nixon OBE, will be answering your questions about the production, the costumes, choreography, characters and more.
We invite you, whether you are attending that performance or not, to submit your questions for David.
