Press release date 
Mon 10 Apr 2017

Northern Ballet has announced that its original ballet for children Ugly Duckling, which first premièred in Leeds in 2012, will return to the stage for the first time this autumn. Performances will be at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre in Leeds with 17 performances from 23 – 28 October 2017 before embarking on a national tour in spring 2018.

Based on the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, Ugly Duckling tell the story of a lonely and fed-up duckling, ignored by those around her who think she is too ugly to fit in. This 40 minute ballet follows her on her journey as she comes to learn that she was beautiful all along. Ugly Duckling is choreographed by Northern Ballet leading soloist Dreda Blow and former Northern Ballet dancer Sebastian Loe, and features set designs by Dave Gillan, lighting by Alastair West, costumes by Julie Anderson and live music arranged by John Longstaff.

Furthermore, the Company’s most recent children’s ballet Goldilocks & the Three Bears, which can currently be seen on its hugely popular nationwide tour, has been adapted for TV by CBeebies and is set to be screened on the channel for the first time on Easter Monday. The CBeebies adaptation of Tortoise & the Hare is also scheduled to be broadcast again on Good Friday. This marks the fifth year that the Company has worked with CBeebies to bring their children’s ballets to wider audiences.

Tickets for Ugly Duckling at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre are on sale now with tickets priced at £6 for adults and £4.50 for children. Tickets can be booked online at theatreleeds.com or by calling the Box Office on 0113 220 8008. Booking early is strongly recommended to avoid disappointment.
