SPA’s most anticipated performance of the season will take place in the spring with the Scottish Ballet performing a vibrant new take on Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play, A Streetcar Named Desire.The company paired award-winning theater and film director Nancy Meckler, renowned for her work with the Royal Shakespeare Company, with internationally acclaimed choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, to create this tour-de-force full-length ballet. Set to a jazz-inspired score and with striking vintage styled costumes and sets, the ensemble of 30 dancers infuses drama and dance to brilliantly tell the iconic, haunting story of a fading Southern belle, Blanche DuBois, as she moves to New Orleans in an attempt to put her troubled past behind her.
