Gillian Lynne

We'd like to wish Dame Gillian Lynne a very happy birthday from all of us at Northern Ballet as she turns 90 on Saturday 20 February. Dame Gillian first worked with Northern Ballet in 1987 creating A Simple Man based on the life and works of LS Lowry. The piece went on to win a BAFTA and introduced the Company to Christopher Gable CBE who went on to become our Artistic Director. In 1989 she choreographed Lipizzaner and in 2009 she returned to Northern Ballet to choreograph On Such A Night for our 40th anniversary celebrations.
