Northern Ballet Sinfonia
Northern Ballet believes that live music enhances performance and is committed to music being played live for almost all productions.
Northern Ballet Sinfonia is made up of 27 players who travel the length and breadth of the UK with the Company playing for over 150 performances every year.
The Sinfonia is also available to play concerts and performances outside the main tour, and is well known for its annual ‘Classical Fantasia’ performance at Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds. Northern Ballet’s commitment to live music also extends to our Learning activities where a professional musician accompanies all workshops.
Northern Ballet Sinfonia has recorded seven extremely successful CDs: 20th Century English Ballets and Dracula (Naxos), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Black Box), Great Expectations (NPC Records), A Streetcar Named Desire (Doyen) and Stephen Warbeck’s Peter Pan (Quartz). A recording of Sir Malcolm Arnold’s stirring music for The Three Musketeers was released in 2007. To buy copies of Peter Pan or The Three Musketeers go to the Shop page of our website.
