With music by Queen and costumes by Gianni Versace, Maurice Bejart brings his Ballet For Life to Sadler's Wells from 28th to 30th September.Ballet for life is an intensely moving work which draws inspiration from the lives of Freddie Mercury and Bejart's former principal dancer Jorge Donn, both of whom died tragically of Aids. The piece is danced to a soundtrack of Queen's greatest hits, including "I want to Break Free" and "The Show Must Go On" and intersperced with pieces by Mozart. Ballet for Life was first performed in 1997 and has played to packed stadiums across Europe.
