This week in Northern Ballet (12 May 2014)
This week is a quiet one in the studios as the Company are casting off their form-fitting lycras in favour of fairy wings and travelling out to Norwich with A Midsummer Night's Dream. This is the home stretch of our spring tour and will see Titania and co also perform in Milton Keynes and Southampton before returning to Leeds for our final performances of the season.
Also this week, Three Little Pigs returns and is heading off on tour to the delights of young children in Norwich.
At our home this week you can see James Wilton Dance performing Last Man Standing. Renowned for exhilarating choreography that leaves you breathless, James draws on martial arts, break dancing and capoeira to create a raw, earthy and ground-breaking performances.
A catch up on last week...
Last week we made history with our first ever performances in Covent Garden at the Royal Opera House's Linbury Studio Theatre with a Mixed Programme. All four performances were sold out and received excellent feedback from the audience.
The Mixed Programme also had some great coverage in the press last week with Jeremy Curnier and Rachael Gillespie gracing page 15 of The Times in a photo of Concerto Six Twenty-Two, and a 4-star review of the performance in the Sunday Express.
