WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Partners in life and on canvas, Marc and Bella Chagall are immortalized as having one of the most romantic marriages of the 20th century. The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk traces the young couple as they navigate the pogroms, the Russian Revolution, and each other. Following the artistic heights of Brief Encounter and 946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips, the Kneehigh theater company and director Emma Rice return to the Wallis with a production that combines the visuals of Chagall's paintings with the music and dance of the Russian Jewish tradition.
