Edward Scissorhands May 29 to Sunday June 2, 2024

Published on Monday, April 29Events

After the revival of Matthew Bourne’s magical dance production in London and previous sold-out performances in America, Australia, Korea and Japan, Edward Scissorhands can finally be seen in the Netherlands: exclusively from May 29 to June 2 in Carré.

Tim Burton’s fairy tale
Edward lives in a castle high on a hill. He is a boy created by an eccentric inventor. When he dies before he can finish his invention, Edward is left alone. A pale boy whose inhumanity is betrayed by the scissors he has instead of hands. One day a kind village woman invites him to live with her family. Can Edward find his place in the society that struggles to see beyond his remarkable appearance?

Matthew Bourne’s Twist
Sir Matthew Bourne (1960) is one of the most exciting choreographers of the moment. He has a great reputation for reimagining classical ballets and iconic stories. His world famous all-male Swan Lake was a hit several times. He won two Tony Awards for it: Best Choreographer and Best Director. Other well-known stories with their own twist are Nutcracker!, Cinderella, Dorian Gray and The Red Shoes. After a sold-out Sleeping Beauty, the British choreographer returns to Carré with Edward Scissorhands.
