History becomes HERstory as Marie returns to the Wortham in grand fashion to close our 2018/19 season. The past unfolds in this dramatic retelling of France’s infamous young monarchs, Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI by Stanton Welch AM. This three-act ballet chronicles the Queen’s tragic life in a time of immense social and political strife for the people of France. Beautifully designed by Kandis Cook, Marie is elegant and extravagant, poignant and powerful, and follows one woman’s complex struggle to protect her family, friends and nation. With compositions from Shostakovich, Marie remains an example of Welch’s powerful blend of storytelling, artistry, and choreography.
