Divas - dance show that pays homage to three icons at Apollo Theatre 19 June to 5 July 2008

Divas , a dance show that pays homage to three of the world's greatest icons - Edith Piaf, Marlene Dietrich and Judy Garland, will open at the Apollo Theatre 25 June 2008, following previews from 19 June for a very limited run to 5 July 2008.

Directed and choreographed by Peter Schaufuss, the show - in three dance acts - focuses on the art and individuality of the three singers and is performed to the original songs.

Featuring original recordings from 'La Vie En Rose' to 'Falling in Love Again' and 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow', 'Divas'.

An international ballet star in the 1970s and 1980s, Peter Schaufuss later became a modernising choreographic force as a company director, winning both the Olivier and Evening Standard awards. He was named artistic director of the London Festival Ballet (now called the English National Ballet) in 1984; was the artistic director of the Deutsch Oper Ballet in Berlin from 1990 to 1994, when he became the artistic director of his native Royal Danish Ballet. In 1997 he formed his own company, Peter Schaufuss Ballet. Today, he is probably best known in the UK for his controversial dance work, ‘Diana, The Princess’, a tribute to his friend, pupil and ENB patron, which premiered in Manchester in 2005. His last West End production was ‘Satisfaction’ in 2007, choreographed to the music of the Rolling Stones.
