Ballet Ireland performs The Glasshouse, a new children’s ballet choreographed by Róisín Whelan in theatres nationwide this October.


An earnest young person is determined to keep their last plant alive as the city’s smoke and fumes engulf the world’s greenery. Along the way friendships are made with unlikely characters and adventures are had on a mission to keep the world turning.

This compelling dance show is about the courage of the human spirit, friendship and life’s determination to survive. Audiences will journey through a tale of transformation and growth and how important it is to take care of things that are precious.

Ballet Ireland’s The Glasshouse by Róisín Whelan is a feast for the eyes and the senses. With moments of suspense and joy, exhilarating dancing and a magical original score, The Glasshouse will enthral children and families alike.

Suitable for ages 6-12
