Help us bring back the magic of Merlin

In autumn 2021 our postponed new ballet Merlin will finally make its world première. Following a nationwide tour, we will then bring Merlin to the big screen, giving cinema audiences everywhere the opportunity to be part of the magic.

Inspired by the story of the mythical wizard, this epic new production will be choreographed by Olivier Award-winning Drew McOnie (Broadway’s King Kong and Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom) in his first collaboration with the Company.

Help the magic of Merlin to finally become a reality.


Bringing the magic of dance to everyone, everywhere.

We tour to theatres nationwide and break down barriers to dance with our outreach work. From touch tours and audio described performances for the visually impaired to school performances and insight workshops, we are committed to making our work accessible to everyone.

Help us get back to bringing Northern Ballet magic into people's lives.
