Northern Ballet’s Chief Executive Mark Skipper responds to the report published yesterday that the Government spends £69 per head on arts and culture in London compared with £4.60 per person elsewhere in England.
Ghostly greetings from Northern Ballet! On this chilly Halloween we are enjoying everything spooky with our ghoulish production of A Christmas Carol currently touring the UK. In one magical night the three ghosts and Old Jacob Marley take miserable Ebenezer Scrooge on a spiritual journey but it is not just our production that has ghostly apparitions, some of our venues have reported strange encounters.
In preparation for the Cello & Piano concert on 18 October with Northern Ballet's Principal Cellist Sasha Volpov and Company Pianist Grant Green, we interviewed Sasha Volpov to see how he was feeling about performing.
As our Autumn tour continues, we are bringing Christmas early this year with the return of A Christmas Carol to celebrate its 21st Anniversay. The first stop for Scrooge and the Christmas ghosts is Norwich. As this was my first ime in the Norwich I did some investigating into what life is like working in the theatre and I interviewed the lovely Amelia Goymer, Box Office Assistant at Norwich Theatre Royal.
There’s no need to get your tail in a knot if you haven’t yet booked your tickets for Three Little Pigs as we’re delighted to announce that we’re adding an extra performance at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre on Friday 1 November at 4.30pm.
My name is Rose Chadwick and I have recently started my post as Dance Education Officer as maternity cover for Sophie Alder.
I've been fortunate enough to have worked with Northern Ballet's Learning team as a freelance dance artist for a number of years and I’m really excited about working with the team and the Company full-time.
