Few can forgot the iconic cry of Marlon Brando as he calls out for Stella. The Scottish Ballet Company forgoes language and channels it into movement in its adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire. The haunting tale of lust and betrayal follows wilted Southern belle Blanche DuBois as she tries to escape her troubled past, only to find a tumultuous present in the face of her sister’s husband Stanley. Developed by director Nancy Meckler and choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, the production features a jazzy score and 30 dancers clad in vintage-style costumes.
