At last we can confirm that Reece Clarke from the Royal Ballet will be joining us in a dance and music performance of Debussy’s sensual L’Après Midi d’Un Faune played on 2 pianos and with choreography by Russell Maliphant!!  This is a first for the Charleston Festival, a first programme there to include two grand pianos and a first for me too!! And we also now are delighted and honoured to announce that David Morrissey will be our distinguished reader.
