Ugly Duckling is our first ballet especially for children and is the perfect opportunity to introduce your little ones to the magic of live ballet, music and theatre.
A poor duckling is lonely and fed-up, shunned by those around her who see her as too ugly to fit in. She tries to make friends with fellow ducklings as well as with frogs, cats and even a fox, but realising she is not like any of these animals, she is left sad and alone. Follow the duckling on her journey as she overcomes her troubles and turns into a beautiful swan, beginning a happy new life.
Our first performances of Ugly Duckling in Leeds were a sell-out success, so don't miss the opportunity to see this adorable production this spring.
These child friendly performances are just 45 minutes long.
Recommended for children aged 0-8 - and grown-ups too!
Please ask venues for babes-in-arms seating and policies on bringing the very young.
We are creating more new Short Ballets for Small People.
