Shakespeare

On 23 April 1616 at the age of 52, William Shakespeare died leaving a legacy of some of the best-loved works of comedy, drama and history the world has ever known. This year we’ll be performing Romeo and Juliet in Sheffield, Canterbury, Belfast, Woking, and Bradford to help celebrate this titan of literature’s long-lasting work.
It's 450 years since the birth of William Shakespeare, and his works are far from being dead as a doornail (Henry VI Part II). In fact his words will live on forever and a day (As You Like It). In our repertoire we have three productions based on the plays of Shakespeare - Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Romeo & Juliet.

The romantic antics of a touring dance company are played out on one midsummer night as the company travels by sleeper train from London to Edinburgh. Dior inspired costumes and stylish black and white sets provide a dazzling contrast to the glorious Technicolor of the dream-world, whilst David Nixon's choreography brings out the comedy, romance and entanglements of this enchanting story. Set to music by Mendelssohn and Brahms, A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Northern Ballet's most magical productions.
