Ballet Central featured in The Jewish Chronicle

Calendar Posted 5 April 2018

Today Ballet Central is featured in the The Jewish Chronicle. Writer Joy Sable discusses with Christopher Marney Kenneth MacMillan's work Valley of Shadows, an excerpt of which features in this year's tour.

Valley of Shadows was Kenneth MacMillan's portrayal of the fate of an Italian Jewish family under fascism, Nazi occupation and the horrors of the death camps.

Inspired by Georgio Bassani's novel 'The Garden of the Finzi-Continis' and the film of the same name by Vittorio de Sica, it was controversial for its choice of subject.

On this year's tour, Ballet Central presents a scene set in the secluded garden of the family. Exiled from the local tennis club from which they are barred by Mussolini's race laws, a group of young people play in the garden.
