About Shall We Dance
Askonas Holt, Raymond Gubbay and Sadler’s Wells present international dance sensation Adam Cooper with his first new production at Sadler’s Wells since his spectacular Les Liaisons Dangereuses in 2005. Set to a score comprised entirely of melodies by Richard Rodgers, Shall We Dance tells the story of one man’s extraordinary quest to find true love. His panoramic voyage transports us from the Orient to the Wild West by way of Russian folk dance, New York jazz and the delirious waltzes of a Viennese ballroom. Conceived and performed by award-winning dancer and choreographer Adam Cooper, this brand new production thrills and seduces with an exhilarating blend of tap, jazz and classical dance.
Rodgers’ show-stoppping score will be brought thrillingly to life by a full live orchestra.
This lavish production brings together the combined creative talents from the West End of musical director Richard
Balcombe (Cats, Phantom of the Opera), designer Paul Farnsworth (Follies, Scrooge) and lighting designer Paul Pyant (Lord of the Rings, The Woman in White).
