Northern Ballet brings dance history to Leeds as we perform a trio of ballets by legendary choreographer Sir Kenneth MacMillan.
The Company’s world-class dancers will showcase their exceptional abilities as they perform three exquisite ballets.
Las Hermanas is a tense psychological drama about five sisters and the consequences that follow a life of harsh repression; Gloria is inspired by Vera Brittain’s wartime memoir Testament of Youth; and Concerto is a dazzling classical piece set to music by Shostakovich.
