"Passions run out of control in this balletic adaption of Thomas Hardy's famous novel by David Bintley, Company Director and award-winning creator of the Company's huge Christmas hit, Cinderella. An enrapturing story of lust, deceit and murder, with one woman at the centre of it all.
Bathsheba Everdene sends ripples through the lives of three men as they compete for her love. The dependable farm-hand Gabriel Oak, the dignified but obsessive William Boldwood and the dashing but deceitful Sergeant Francis Troy, all vie with each other for the heart of the woman they love... Bathsheba's complex relationship with all three leads one to death, one to madness and the other to true love."
