Transcription Hello and welcome to Northern Ballet’s audio brochure. Northern Ballet is the UK’s leading narrative dance company, touring extensively throughout the UK and internationally. Northern Ballet is unique in bringing together stunning classical dance, vivid, exciting theatre and live music to create productions based on well-known stories. 
Once upon a time there lived a handsome prince whose heart had been bewitched by an evil fairy, La Feé Misérable. She had turned the prince into an evil man, enslaving the people of his court. When the good fairy, La Bonne Feé, arrived at the castle she was dismayed by La Feé Misérable's wicked deeds.
