This week in Northern Ballet (12 May 2014)

Published on Monday 12 May, 2014

This week is a quiet one in the studios as the Company are casting off their form-fitting lycras in favour of fairy wings and travelling out to Norwich with A Midsummer Night's Dream. This is the home stretch of our spring tour and will see Titania and co also perform in Milton Keynes and Southampton before returning to Leeds for our final performances of the season.

A catch up on last week...

Matthew Topliss, Abigail Prudames, Joseph Taylor, Rachael Gillespie and Matthew Koon at Covent Garden.

Last week we made history with our first ever performances in Covent Garden at the Royal Opera House's Linbury Studio Theatre with a Mixed Programme. All four performances were sold out and received excellent feedback from the audience.

The Mixed Programme also had some great coverage in the press last week with Jeremy Curnier and Rachael Gillespie gracing page 15 of The Times in a photo of Concerto Six Twenty-Two, and a 4-star review of the performance in the Sunday Express.
