Peter Pan
Imagination takes flight and time stands still in the mystical world of Jorden Morris’ Peter Pan. Atmospheric scenery transports audiences through starry skies to the tangled forests of Neverland and the decks of Hook’s Jolly Roger. Set to works by English composers, high-flying choreography and aerial acrobatics animate a fantastical realm where fairies flit through the sky, pirates patrol the waters and Peter Pan leads his Lost Boys in endless adventure.
