Government Spending Review


An enduring icon of the ancient world. The ultimate modern woman. Beautiful, sensual and determined; mother, lover and queen. In a world ruled by men, this courageous and compulsive woman overturned convention and changed the course of history.


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.

With music composed by Golden Globe and Academy Award nominated Claude-Michel Schönberg (famed for Les Misérables and Miss Saigon),  played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia, and choreography from Northern Ballet’s Artistic Director David Nixon OBE, Cleopatra is an unmissable retelling of a remarkable woman’s story.
