Sadler’s Wells announces UK Premiere of Voices of the Amazon

ollowing the Grammy® Award nominated success of INALA, a Zulu ballet performed with Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Sisters Grimm return to Sadler’s Wells to present the UK Premiere of VOICES OF THE AMAZON, from 4-8 July 2017. Tickets are now on sale.

A new dance musical from the heart of Brazil, VOICES OF THE AMAZON tells the tale of a water spirit from the Amazon River, who ventures deep into the rainforest in search of a cure for her dying sister. She soon finds that the forest is not as abundant as it was.

Award winning American choreographer Helen Pickett, who has worked with the likes of Scottish Ballet and Royal Ballet of Flanders, fuses ballet, contemporary dance and capoeira with a lush musical score born of a collaboration with Brazilian songwriters and world-renowned percussionists, Olodum.
