Lar Lubovitch

Martha Leebolt and Giuliano Contadini in Concertante.
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.
Concerto Six Twenty-Two, choreographed by Lar Lubovitch, was commissioned by Centre National de Danse (Angers, France) and premièred in 1986 at Carnegie Hall in New York. Although men dancing together has existed in modern dance almost from the beginning, Concerto Six Twenty-Two brought a new freedom of expression to this concept and, while the piece does not tell a literal story, it indelibly portrays the depth of friendship expressed within a supportive and caring relationship between men.
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! 
Lar Lubovitch trained at The Julliard School and founded the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company in New York in 1968. Now celebrating its 45th anniversary, with over 120 dance pieces, it has gained an international reputation as one of America’s top dance companies. Lar’s works are also included in the repertoires of major dance companies throughout the world.
After the long Easter weekend we are back in the studio getting ready for the Mixed Programme at Linbury Studio Theatre at Royal Opera House. Kenneth Tindall's Luminous Juncture is set to get it's London premiere, Hans van Manen's Concertante makes a welcome return to the repertoire after a wonderful response last year and the dance legend Lar Lubovitch is in the studios rehearsing Concerto Six Twenty-Two.
