Red Queen

The Red Queen


The Red Queen is a character from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass. She’s a sinister mixture of power and futility: even as she doles out orders willy-nilly, she seems to lock herself in a weird and lonely prison of words.

We’re co-opting the Queen for our own purposes in this exhibition at Mona.

MONA opening hours: Wednesday – Monday 10am – 6pm (closed Tuesday)

Exhibition extended until September 2014!

The Dancers Company – Classical Triple Bill

Theatre Royal

In 2014 The Dancers Company will dazzle Theatre Royal audiences with a triple bill of ballet gems including Paquita, Rimbombo and Swan Lake (Act III).

The popular tutu spectacular Paquita, choreographed by Marius Petipa, is one of the cornerstones of traditional classical ballet and the perfect opportunity for dancers to display their sparkling technique.

Rimbombo, Italian for rumble, is choreographed in a classical style and features the young male dancers of the company, showcasing their athleticism and artistry.

Swan Lake is undoubtedly the most beloved ballet of all time. This traditional version of Act III shows why with its dramatic ballroom scene featuring Tchaikovsky’s iconic score, opulent costumes and the famous Black Swan Pas des deux.
