Three Short Ballets

Join us for a trio of contemporary ballets created by choreographers from across the generations – brought together by Artistic Director Federico Bonelli.

The latest Northern Ballet short ballet showcase features complementary works from three outstanding contemporary choreographers. Performed by Northern Ballet’s brilliant company of classical dancers, Generations features work by:

  • Tiler Peck – the American ballet superstar creates her first work for a European company, receiving its world premiere here.
  • Benjamin Ella – a UK premiere of the new piece from the fast-rising choreographer and Royal Ballet Soloist.
  • Hans van Manen – the Dutch master’s extraordinary Adagio Hammerklavier, a contemporary classic performed to mark 50 years since its premiere.
