If you yearn for those heady days of spats and tails, sequins and ball-gowns and Astaire and Rogers, this series of shows is just for you, whether you're young or older. Strictly Gershwin is a hark back to the 'big-band' era and features stunning choreography courtesy of Gareth Valentine and Derek Deane, plus the dancers from the English National Ballet performing some of Gershwin's most famous pieces.

Tunes such as "Rhapsody in Blue", "An American in Paris", "I Got Rhythm", "Summertime" and "Shall We Dance" all feature in this spectacular show that will also conjure up images of the golden Hollywood period when the 'silver screen' ruled the high streets both sides of the Atlantic. There will be a live jazz orchestra performing the hits and more, as well as a supporting cast from the National Ballet of Canada.

The performances will run from 10th to 19th June inclusive with various ticket options ranging from Circles at £31 to Boxes at £65, making this an ideal birthday treat!

Following the Royal Albert Hall residency, the show will tour the UK, stopping-off in Oxford, Manchester, Southampton, Liverpool and Milton Keynes in October and November.
