The Lantern Dance Theatre Company performed a new work, Tiddy Mun, as part of the Isle of Ely Arts Festival.
Sunday’s performance was a retelling of the old Fen story with original music composed by Ely recorder Philip Mizen with funding from the Arts Council of England.
Mike Rouse, who attended the show, said: “A large audience in the Paradise Centre was really appreciative of Helen Pettit’s latest work with her integrated contemporary dance company and of Philip’s music.
“Solomon Golding, who is a Lantern honorary patron, member of the Royal Ballet and is about to join the San Francisco Ballet, was in the audience.
“This was something very special, it was graceful, poignant and moving,” added Mr Rouse, “encapsulating the essence of this old Fen story.
