The Willow Pattern Ballet
A beautiful story of eternal Love.
Ballet tells stories: Fairy tales and dreams, drama and fantasy, love and legend.
THE WILLOW PATTERN is at last bringing to life a 250 year old Legend that tells the beautiful story of the secret Love of the High Mandarin's daughter for his low-born clerk, and his for her.
Waiting to be noticed on the familiar blue-and-white Willow Pattern tableware design that is recognisable worldwide, the story that it shows has nevertheless remained hidden in open sight for centuries, unseen by the largest number of those looking.
Set to a suite of music composed especially to present it, THE WILLOW PATTERN brings the Legend out of its patient shadows, tells its story of hidden Love, betrayal, escape and a new life, and later discovery and ultimately the release of two beautiful souls to be together for all of eternity.
