We are pleased to be able to provide audio descriptions for our spring 2021 tour to Salford, London and Leeds. 

Co-written by former Northern Ballet Premier Dancer Pippa Moore and VocalEyes, these audio descriptions offer a unique insight into our productions and bringing our performances to life.

You will hear descriptions of the movement, action and drama on stage with music played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

15 minutes prior to the performance, you will hear pre-show notes which describe the set, props and costumes via your headset or audio description device.
