Five Wishes

Scottish Ballet head out into communities across Scotland to grant five special wishes. Celebrating 50 years of this Scottish institution, we see five heartwarming tales of courage and hope.

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of Scottish Ballet. To celebrate, the institute ran a very special project, asking the public to make wishes that could only be granted by Scottish Ballet.

After hundreds of wishes, and thousands of votes, the final five were chosen by a celebrity panel including Darcey Bussell, Susan Calman and Fred Macaulay. This is the story of what happened next.

This documentary follows the ballet every step of the way as they make five unique wishes come true. From 11-year-old Lily battling with cancer to the Every Voice Choir in Dumbarton, these are stories of love, hope and courage – all told with a balletic twist.
