Strictly Gershwin is a dazzling celebration of George Gershwin and the sparkling age of Hollywood music and dance. Gershwin’s sassy tunes, most famously Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris, combine with Derek Deane’s sensational choreography to conjure up the Silver Screen genius of Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gene Kelly. With over 100 dancers and musicians filling the stage, glitzy cinematic images set the scene for English National Ballet's fabulous dance spectacular. This glittering in-the-round production recreates the razzmatazz of the big band era, featuring a journey in dance from ballroom to jazz, building to a breathtaking balletic finale. Strictly Gershwin will be accompanied by a live jazz orchestra in a nostalgic return to the famous big band sound of the forties with a guest star appearance by world-famous singer Barbara Cook. Strictly Gershwin will be performed by the full company of English National Ballet with special guest appearances by Tamara Rojo from The Royal Ballet, Guillaume Côté from National Ballet of Canada, Friedemann Vogel from Stuttgart Ballet and Agnes Oaks and Thomas Edur from English National Ballet. Nightly casting is listed below:

Performers Tamara Rojo, Friedemann Vogel, Guilluame Cote, Thomas Edur, Agnes Oaks, Barbara Cook.
