This astonishing take on Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece 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.

Production shot

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.

Choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and directed by Nancy Meckler, with set and costume designs by Niki Turner, and score by Peter Salem (The Crucible) performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.

Enhance your experience of A Streetcar Named Desire with a pre-show talk on Fri 14 Apr 2023 where the Scottish Ballet artistic team will share some behind-the-scenes insights into the production. Book your tickets here.
