The Most Incredible Thing @ Sadler’s Wells (25 March to 7 April)

March 25, 2012toApril 7, 2012

As the UK’s leading dance house, Sadler’s Wells presents dance in all its forms to the widest possible audiences.

For the Easter holidays, Sadler’s Wells presents a wide variety of productions and events aimed specifically at children and young families.


Following its sell-out success in 2011, pop legends Pet Shop Boys and choreographer/director Javier De Frutos return with their hugely popular Sadler’s Wells collaboration.

This modern fairytale based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fable, adapted by Matthew Dunster, centres on a contest to produce ‘the most incredible thing’, with a prize of half the kingdom and marriage to the princess at stake.

Created by a team including long-time Pet Shop Boys collaborator Sven Helbig, Tony Award-winning designer Katrina Lindsay (Les Liaisons Dangereuses), and BAFTA-winning film animator, Tal Rosner, The Most Incredible Thing also features a talented cast of 16 dancers and a live orchestra.

“A big, shiny fairytale pop-ballet. Lavish, family-friendly entertainment” – The Times
