Madame Butterfly

Here we have collected reviews and comments about our production of Madame Butterfly from press, blogs, Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere on the internet.
On a wet Tuesday morning last week I started my internship with Northern Ballet’s Communications team. After a very warm welcome the team sent me to Manchester to see the latest production of Madame Butterfly.
Filmed at Leeds Grand Theatre in March 2012, this footage from David Nixon's acclaimed production of Madame Butterfly. Performed by Northern Ballet dancers to live music from the Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

As promised here are the Madame Butterfly photos of our tour to Beijing. We started our tour with 3 performances of Romeo & Juliet. Toby Batley performed Romeo and Hannah Bateman performed Juliet on the opening night at the Opera House in Beijing and both were absolutely outstanding.
The day crew arrived to find local staff asleep around the set having worked into the small hours changing over to Madame Butterfly.
