Madame Butterfly

Following the announcement that Northern Ballet is to première an adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984 by Jonathan Watkins in September 2015, the Leeds-based Company, which is celebrating its 45th anniversary year, has released details of its plans for spring 2015 with a season of iconic love stories giving 134 performances across 28 venues in the UK.
Here we have collected reviews and comments about our production of Madame Butterfly from press, blogs, Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere on the internet.
On a wet Tuesday morning last week I started my internship with Northern Ballet’s Communications team. After a very warm welcome the team sent me to Manchester to see the latest production of Madame Butterfly.
Filmed at Leeds Grand Theatre in March 2012, this footage from David Nixon's acclaimed production of Madame Butterfly. Performed by Northern Ballet dancers to live music from the Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

This resource pack is designed to give teachers an insight into Northern Ballet's production of Madame Butterfly, and toprovide practical ideas and tasks that can be used in the classroom. It is particularly suitable for teachers working with pupils in dance and drama. It also provides some signposts for links with other areas of the curriculum.
Madame Butterfly has been in Northern Ballet's repertoire since 2002 and has been toured internationally - as far afield as Beijing.

As promised here are the Madame Butterfly photos of our tour to Beijing. We started our tour with 3 performances of Romeo & Juliet. Toby Batley performed Romeo and Hannah Bateman performed Juliet on the opening night at the Opera House in Beijing and both were absolutely outstanding.
