This astonishing take on Tennessee Williams’ famous play is narrative ballet at its very best, with stunning dance, devastating drama, pitch-perfect period design and a sizzling score used to tell the iconic story.

Scottish Ballet’s hugely popular, award-winning production of A Streetcar Named Desire returns to the stage for the first time since 2015, touring to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness, and thanks to generous support from the Bently Foundation, to the Orkney Islands and Outer Hebrides.

In steamy 1940s New Orleans, fading Southern belle Blanche DuBois moves into her sister Stella’s apartment. Stella’s brutish husband Stanley sees that Blanche is not what she appears to be, and sets out to destroy her... 

Scottish Ballet’s stylish production breathes new life into the classic tale, with graceful waltzes at the DuBois family home, electrifying lindy jives in a Louisiana nightclub, and intense duets in the caged heat of Stella and Stanley’s apartment.
