Major national tour of new ballet for children, Little Red Riding Hood, announced for 2020

Press release date 
Wed 23 Oct 2019

Northern Ballet has announced that its new ballet for children, Little Red Riding Hood, will embark on a major national tour throughout spring 2020, following its World Première in Leeds next week. The production will tour the country from March to May 2020, visiting more than 25 theatres.

Adapted from the classic fairytale, Little Red Riding Hood tells the story of a little girl who comes across a very hungry wolf in the forest. But is he really such a big, bad wolf? This child friendly 40 minute ballet follows their adventure as they meet friends and discover the importance of kindness. It has been created especially for children and their families to experience live dance, music and theatre together.

Little Red Riding Hood follows in the footsteps of the Company’s six previous children’s ballets, which have achieved huge popularity live on stage, in CBeebies TV adaptations and in cinemas nationwide. With an all female creative team, Little Red Riding Hood will feature choreography by Mariana Rodrigues, set designs by Marjoke Henrichs, lighting by Abbi Fearnley, costume designs by Mariana Rodrigues in collaboration with Kim Brassley and Carley Marsh, and music composed by Eloise Gynn, 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 thrilled to be touring Little Red Riding Hood so extensively across the country next spring. Our children’s ballets have been enchanting families across the UK for several years, creating a truly magical live dance experience for all ages to enjoy together. We are delighted to continue that tradition with Mariana’s new production.’
