Based on Thomas Hardy's 1874 novel of the same name, Far from the Madding Crowd is period drama at its best. With a story that doesn't allow for the fantastic coups de théâtre for which Bintley is known, the work relies purely on the gorgeous and authentic designs, and detailed and expressive choreography to tell the story of Bathsheba Everdene and her eventful, tragic, but ultimately happy and fulfilled life.
