Twyla Tharp’s critically acclaimed story ballet is a dazzling romp through a fantastical world where goblins reign and courageous children battle for good over evil.

Over her long and illustrious career, Twyla Tharp has brought ballet into the popular imagination the world over and her work has irrevocably changed the face of modern dance. Tharp’s defining new ballet is an adaption of a fairy tale by Victorian fantasy novelist George MacDonald, who is credited with inspiring authors W.H. Auden, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.

The story follows young Princess Irene on a courageous quest to the underworld as she discovers the town’s children being kidnapped by The Goblin. Guided by her Great-Great-Grandmother, the heroine rescues the children against the odds in a transformative and inspiring story of humility and forgiveness.

Tharp, one of contemporary dance’s most eminent figures, has created a true delight for audiences of all ages. With it’s clever choreography, original costuming and dramatic staging, The Princess and the Goblin is, at it’s heart, a dynamic and captivating tale.
