The Secret Theatre

Scottish Ballet will bring the magic of theatre to your home this Christmas thanks to their brand-new film, The Secret Theatre!

The Secret Theatre

About The Secret Theatre

In a deserted city, a young boy stumbles into a theatre. He wanders through the auditorium, where rows of velvet chairs, draping curtains and chandeliers seem to lie in lonely wait for audiences to return. The theatre may be empty, but the show will go on...

Starring characters from our most popular festive ballets, the worlds of the Snow Queen and the Sugar Plum Fairy collide when the theatre bursts into life. In this spectacular, feature-length film, you’ll be treated to an extraordinary show filled with acrobats, snowflakes, clowns, princes and – of course – beautiful ballerinas.

The Secret Theatre features the choreography of Scottish Ballet founder Peter Darrell and CEO/Artistic Director Christopher Hampson, co-directed for the screen by Jess & Morgs. With set and costumes designed by Lez Brotherston; music by Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky, recorded live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra; and performances from the full Scottish Ballet Company; this Christmas special will be an unforgettable adventure for all the family.

The Secret Theatre will premiere on Monday 21 December at 6pm and be available online until Thursday 24 December. Tickets are FREE and must be booked in advance.

Please consider making an optional donation to support the making of this film.

Running time: approximately one hour
