Elves & the Shoemaker

Following the fantastic sell-out success of Ugly Duckling and Three Little Pigs, we're delighted to present our next ballet for children, Elves & the Shoemaker.

READ MORE

A hard-working but poor shoemaker struggles to earn enough money to support his family. The kind-hearted man decides to give his final pair of shoes, all he has left in the world, to a poor lady in need of help. The next morning the shoemaker awakes to find that his last piece of leather has been transformed into the most magnificent pair of shoes overnight. He discovers that not only are the shoes beautiful; they are also magical. Who is the mysterious maker of these marvellous shoes?

Retelling the famous Brothers Grimm story, Elves & the Shoemaker is the perfect opportunity to introduce your little ones to the magic of live ballet, music and theatre.

After the BAFTA award-winning TV adaptation of Ugly Duckling for CBeebies, make sure you don’t miss this enchanting new production.

Choreographed by Ballet Master Daniel de Andrade, Elves & the Shoemaker will be set to an original score by composer Philip Feeney, played live, with set designs by Ali Allen.
