Rumpelstiltskin Suite in London

Reading time: 1 min. David Sawer

The world première of the Rumpelstiltskin Suite will take place on 6 April at the Wigmore Hall in London.

David Sawer on the piece for ensemble: “The Rumpelstiltskin Suite is shorter than the original ballet [Rumpelstiltskin], it’s about 25 to 30 minutes long. The original score is divided into eight movements, and from these original eight movements I’ve taken six and shortened them to make the suite. So it tells the story still, but in a much more compressed manner.”
