About

Royal Ballet principals Federico Bonelli, Laura Morera and Steven McRae dance the lead roles in Liam Scarlett’s new ballet, based on the world’s most famous work of horror fiction, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. This ambitious theatrical collaboration brings the novel to life with spectacular period sets and costumes by John Macfarlane and a newly commissioned score by Lowell Liebermann. Scarlett’s choreography draws out the emotional power of this classic story. Passionate encounters between Victor, Elizabeth and the Creature express their torment, regret, anger, yearning and love.

‘McRae’s portrayal is brilliant; his dancing is eloquent in its anguish, and we sense every beat of his lonely, vengeful heart....’
- The Observer

‘Royal Ballet’s Frankenstein is brilliantly brutal’ - The Londonist
