What happens to our beautiful sets when they are not on tour I hear you ask, well Northern Ballet have a dedicated workshop and storage building known as Bramley, in West Leeds, where all our sets live. Andy Waddington, our Techincal Director, kindly let me sneak my camera in to have a look at our Cinderella set up close. Parts of the Cinderella set
If you’ve been following Channel 4’s Big Ballet last week you saw the dancers starting their training and auditioning for parts in Swan Lake. I tweeted at the time how fantastic the professional Northern Ballet dancers looked and they were almost matched by the splendour of the Northern Ballet studios (some scenes were also filmed at our neighbours Yorkshire Dance).
As I continue the tour with the Company, I cornered Andy Waddington, Technical Director, for top facts about the technical side of the tour for A Midsummer Night's Dream.
