World Première of Victoria announced

Press release date 
Thu 24 May 2018

After all the excitement of last weekend's Royal Wedding, we have some exciting royal news of our own as we are delighted to announce the world première of Victoria, a ballet by Cathy Marston for spring 2019.

This regal new ballet will coincide with the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of Britain’s most iconic monarchs. The world première will take place in Leeds on 9 March 2019 followed by a UK wide tour visiting Sheffield, London, Leicester, Edinburgh, Milton Keynes, Cardiff and Belfast until June 2019.

Ahead of this announcement we took Soloists Abigail Prudames and Joseph Taylor as Queen Victoria and Prince Albert for a suitably lavish photo shoot at Harewood House in Leeds, one of the major filming locations for ITV's 'Victoria'. Check out the photos below:
