Wednesday September 20th 2023Share page

A fresh and family friendly retelling of Rapunzel by Carol Ann Duffy by leading dance theatre company balletLORENT will be coming to the Derby Theatre on Friday 9 February at 6.30pm and Saturday 10 February at 2pm. 

In this mighty production a red headed Rapunzel becomes entrapped in the tower because her hair grows so long, meaning her beauty stays hidden from the outside world. A possessive Witch and her pet Creatures are Rapunzel’s only company until a Prince comes along, drawn by the sound of her sweet song… 

Full of fight, passion and longing, this beloved must-see fairytale brings together a collection of world-class collaborators; former Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, award-winning composer Murray Gold (Doctor Who; Gentlemen Jack; It’s A Sin), and Michele Clapton, award-winning Costume Designer (Game of Thrones; The Crown; Mamma Mia). The score is performed by Northern Sinfonia. Full of colour and emotion, this spellbinding retelling is narrated by leading British actor Lesley Sharp (The Full Monty; Scott and Bailey; Three Girls) and is choreographed and directed by Liv Lorent MBE.
