Marius Petipa’s fantasy, set in legendary India, tells the tale of a temple dancer and the prince who loves her but marries another. The famous, moonlit ‘white act’ – The Kingdom of the Shades – is a corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince’s lost love haunt his mind. The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while a bronze idol comes vividly to life in a stunning solo. Throughout, the melody and moods of Minkus’s music perfectly match the fluidity and precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling. Choreographed by Natalia Makarova with music by Ludwig Minkus. Running Time: approx 185 mins - Three acts, including 2 intervals
The seniors and juniors of FYTG come together to create a new, imaginative and entertaining Christmas show, based on the carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas. The young actors have created their own responses to the unusual gifts that grow in size and grandness through the song.

These 12 short skits have been devised over 10 weeks with the artistic guidance of FYTG directors, through a programme that, week by week, has developed their ideas into well-formed dramatic pieces. The performances contain a range of theatre styles including dance, comedy, song, movement, mime, puppetry and masks. All the pieces are joined together by the singing of the carol to form an exciting and veritable Christmas Feast.

A fictionalised drama about legendary author Charles Dickens' possible real-life inspirations, and motivations for writing the classic story A Christmas Carol. It's 1843, and 31-year-old Dickens (Dan Stevens) hasn't had a commercial success in several years; he's facing a personal financial crisis after three critically panned books. So he decides to write a Christmas-themed book after encountering various strangers -- including a waiter named Marley, a greedy businessman, and a dry-eyed elderly man (Christopher Plummer) who says "humbug" at his business partner's funeral. When Dickens fails to secure a publisher, he decides to seek financing to self-publish. On a tight six-week deadline, Dickens begins to see the characters as memorable strangers and loved ones alike, with Scrooge (played by Plummer) popping up in his head and defending his miserly positions until the novella is done. Directed by Bharat Nalluri and starring Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer and Jonathan Pryce. Running Time: 104mins
