Escape to the glamour and grace of Paris, 1960, with Starstruck – Gene Kelly’s love letter to ballet.

Having originally trained in classical ballet, the legendary Gene Kelly was invited to create an original work for the Paris Opera Ballet in 1960. His jazzy, joyful Pas de Dieux was hugely influential and acclaimed at the time as ‘a breath of fresh air’, but rarely performed since. It has now been given a new set of wings by Scottish Ballet’s CEO/Artistic Director Christopher Hampson, in collaboration with Kelly’s widow, Patricia Ward Kelly, Tony Award-winning designer Lez Brotherston, and film director Oscar Sansom.

This immersive feature film will combine live performance capture of Scottish Ballet’s five-star stage production with cinematic sequences inspired by the golden age of Hollywood.

Set to Gershwin’s effortlessly cool Concerto in F, with extracts from Chopin; Starstruck is exactly the evening of entertainment you’ve been longing for.
