A Christmas Carol

One magical night. Three terrifying ghosts.

READ MORE

A perfect tale for Christmas.

Christmas comes early this year as Northern Ballet's heart-warming and hugely popular adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic tale returns to the stage.

Colourful sets and costumes by Olivier Award winning Lez Brotherston (Northern Ballet's Romeo & Juliet, Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Edward Scissorhands) conjure up a traditional Victorian Christmas, while Carl Davis' festive score blends classical music with traditional Christmas Carols, played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

An audience favourite for over 20 years, A Christmas Carol is guaranteed to get your festive season off to a magical start. Book now.

Running time 2 hours 11 minutes
