will invade London, courtesy of four-time Grammy-winning a cappella group Ladysmith Black Mambazo. They take another leap forward with this collaboration with leading choreographer Mark Baldwin.
From September 17, the stage of Sadler’s Wells will see two cultures merge in a show featuring 18 dancers and musicians. The ballet will then tour England. The group will appear on stage and have also contributed to the original score.
Award-winning Baldwin uses Western classical ballet to accompany the traditional Zulu music.
The Guardian has called Inala a “thing of stirring beauty”.
