Northern Ballet’s Cleopatra has thrilled audiences and critics, and gained celebrity fans since its world première in 2011. This stunning ballet charts Cleopatra’s sensational rise to power, her scandalous romances with the most powerful men in history, and her eventual downfall.
Patricia has worked extensively with Northern Ballet, beginning as drama consultant and acting coach on Christopher Gable’s Dracula, continuing with him and Michael Pink on Giselle and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.  She then directed Northern Ballet’s Carmen and A Streetcar Named Desire, both choreographed by Didy Veldman.
