The richly rewarding life of painter L.S. Lowry saw him acclaimed as one of the greatest painters to come out of Great Britain in the 20th century. In 1987, a specially commissioned concert was staged to reflect on his career, and was fittingly held on the date of his birth. The Northern Ballet Theatre combine with Moira Shearer and Christopher Gable in a production staged by Gillian Lynne, creating a wonderful tribute to the great painter.
Commissioned to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the painter L.S. Lowry in 1987, this BAFTA award-winning dramatic ballet celebrates the life and work of a unique artist. Created by Gillian Lynne in collaboration with the composer Carl Davis this memorable production, filmed in 1987, is performed by the Northern Ballet Theatre, led by ex-Royal Ballet stars Christopher Gable and Moira Shearer. Remastered for DVD, with the addition of recent interviews with Lynne and Davis, it gives a fascinating insight into the creation of an inspirational work in the history of dance, which remains as fresh as ever.
