“The Wind in the Willows” — Duchess Theatre – 11th December 2013 to 1st February 2014
“The Wind in the Willows” follows the adventures of Toad, Ratty, Mole and Badger on the cool and leafy riverbank.

Will Tuckett’s production of the Royal Opera House ballet brings all the magic of Kenneth Graham’s classic tale to the stage. With theatrical choreography and a wonderful score, it is perfect family entertainment.
