BROKEN WINGS – ENGLISH NATIONAL BALLET

Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Broken Wings tells the story of one of the most iconic artists of the 20th century, Frida Kahlo, from her life-changing accident as a teenager to her stormy relationship with painter Diego Rivera. Broken Wings marks the second collaboration between Peter, Lopez Ochoa and director Nancy Meckler; their first being the award-winning A Streetcar Named Desire for the Scottish Ballet.
“it’s triumph is inseparable from Peter Salem’s score, a vast exotic landscape in itself. Blasts of Tijuana brass and louche maracas summon the heat of a Mexican fiesta”
