This week in Northern Ballet (16 June 2014)
The final week of the season is upon us but there's no resting on our laurels as we prepare to open our Mixed Programme at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre in our Leeds city-centre home. The programme includes Lar Lubovitch's Concerto Six Twenty-Two and Hans van Manen's Concertante, fresh from our sell-out tour to London. The programme will also see the world première of Kenneth Tindall's The Architect. Tickets are selling fast so book soon and be amongst the first to see this exciting new work.
A catch-up on last week...
Last week the Company were busy rehearsing in the studios rehearsing for this week's Mixed Programme and also working on the creation of Elves & the Shoemaker. In addition to the première at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre, tickets are now on sale for community performances of Elves & the Shoemaker and also the spring tour to Southampton. More dates and venues to be added soon.
Last week we also released our new What's On brochure, detailing all the exciting upcoming performances for the autumn season.
We announced promotions for three of our dancers and are getting ready to welcome 12 new faces to the Company.
Performance and drinks reception only tickets went on sale for the Academy of Northern Ballet's 10th anniversary CAT Gala and we spoke to Leading Soloist, Hannah Bateman, about Gala which she is organising.
