We are delighted to announce that our newest ballet for children, Puss in Boots, will embark on a major national tour throughout spring 2019, following its World Première in Leeds this October. The production will tour the country from April to June 2019, visiting more than 20 theatres.
Inspired by the much-loved fairytale, Puss in Boots tells the story of a remarkable cat who, despite being both clever and charming, always seems to bring his master bad luck. This child friendly 40 minute ballet follows their adventure as they meet a flurry of characters and even come face to face with royalty! It has been created especially for children and their families to experience live dance, music and theatre together.
Puss in Boots follows in the footsteps of the Company’s five previous children’s ballets, all of which have achieved huge popularity both live on stage and in CBeebies TV adaptations. Choreographed by Jenna Lee, founder and Creative Director of JLeeProductions and former English National Ballet Soloist, Puss in Boots will feature set designs by Ali Allen, lighting by Alastair West, costume designs by Jenna Lee in collaboration with Kim Brassley and Carley Marsh, and music composed by Richard Norriss, played live by members of Northern Ballet Sinfonia at every venue.
Daniel de Andrade, Northern Ballet’s Artistic Director of Children’s Ballets, said: ‘We are delighted to be touring Puss in Boots so extensively across the country next spring. Our short ballets have been enchanting children across the UK for several years, creating a truly magical live dance experience for the whole family to enjoy. We now look forward to continuing that tradition with Jenna Lee’s new production.’
