Scottish Ballet Highland Fling

Presented exclusively by Scottish Ballet, Matthew Bourne's Highland Fling is La Sylphide for the Trainspotting generation.

Highland Fling follows the downfall of James- a young Scot with sex, love and rock and roll on his mind. Recently married to his beloved Effie, his addiction to excess finds him in the company of a wild, gothic fairy. As his love for the strange and beautiful fairy becomes an obsession, James embarks on a fateful journey that takes him from the mean streets and nightclubs of Glasgow into a world beyond reality and reason.

Herman Severin Løvenskjold's magnificent score will be performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Running time: Approx. 1 hour 35 min, including one 20 minute interval.

Age recommendation: 14+ (contains a few humorous references to adult themes)


This tour marks the first time Matthew Bourne's Highland Fling will be performed in Shetland, Orkney, Lewis and Argyll.
