Bristol Old Vic, Kneehigh and Wise Children Present

With music by Ian Ross

Dec 11 - 18


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, this Kneehigh production, directed by Emma Rice, combines the visuals of Chagall’s paintings with the music and dance of the Russian Jewish tradition. 

It is gorgeous. And it will make you ache to see theater live.” – THE NEW YORK TIMES

The Flying Lovers may prove to be the production that defines digital theatre. For here, Emma Rice has shown us that this need not be a replacement or temporary form of performance, but it is an entirely new way of making theatre." – THEATRE WEEKLY
