After a sold-out run in Shetland, Orkney and Argyll, Scottish Ballet brings Matthew Bourne’s Highland Fling to Stornoway on Thursday and Friday this week (May 3-4)

The performance is at Lewis Sports Centre but you have to head to to buy one of the remaining tickets.

Highland Fling follows the downfall of James, a young Scot with sex, love and rock and roll on his mind.

Recently married to his beloved Effie, his addiction to excess finds him in the company of a wild, gothic fairy.

As his love for the strange and beautiful fairy becomes an obsession, James embarks on a fateful journey that takes him from the mean streets and nightclubs of Glasgow into a world beyond reality and reason.

In no small technical feat, audiences in these locations will enjoy the exact same full-scale production which is is being performed in Glasgow and Edinburgh. 

To make this possible, Scottish Ballet's Technical Department transforms halls and gymnasiums into theatres.

Age recommendation: 14+ (contains a few humorous references to adult themes)
