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.
Hans van Manen, from Nieuwer Amstel in the Netherlands, had his first ballet lessons at the end of the 1940s from Sonia Gaskell, who took him into her Company, Ballet Recital, in 1951. In 1957 he made his debut as a choreographer with Feestgericht which received the State Award for Choreography. From 1961 onwards van Manen has worked alternately with the two main dance companies of the Netherlands. Since 2005 he has once again held the post of resident choreographer with the Dutch National Ballet.
This week we welcome our dancers back to Leeds after being out on tour for for almost a month. It's nice to have them back in the building where rehearsals and creativity are top of the agenda as everyone prepares for the final performances of the season with the Mixed Programme at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre.
Last week the Company was in London, and what a week it was! Our first ever performances in Covent Garden and our first triple bill outside of Leeds in recent years! After being invited to watch the Mixed Programme rehearsals during the previous week I was already highly anticipating our arrival at the Royal Opera House (ROH) and by the time my delightful Cockney cabbie pulled up outside on of London's most famous buildings I was absolutely jittering with excitement.
It's an exciting week ahead as we prepare to head down to London for our Company debut at the Royal Opera House's Linbury Studio Theatre.
This time next week the Company will be in residence at the Royal Opera House's Linbury Studio Theatre with a Mixed Programme. It's an important occasion for two reasons as it's our first ever performance at the famous Covent Garden venue and this is also the first time we've performed a triple bill outside of Leeds in recent years. If you haven't seen Northern Ballet in a Mixed Programme before then you've never seen Northern Ballet quite like this!
