Experience the captivating power of one of the world’s leading ballet companies in three sensational short ballets.

With something for everyone, don’t miss Northern Ballet’s unrivalled blend of dramatic flair and incredible technique up close this spring. 

The Kingdom of Back (Morgann Runacre-Temple) is inspired by the life of composer Wolfgang Mozart’s exceptional but overshadowed sister, Nannerl. This entertaining performance will leave you rooting for a woman born ahead of her time.

Full of punch, drive and energy, Powerhouse Rhumba (David Nixon OBE) serves up a visual feast of athleticism, dynamics and speed in a heart-thumping, music-pumping fiesta.

For an Instant (Amaury Lebrun) doesn’t tell a story, but you’ll be moved and inspired as the dancers portray fleeting moments from life. Striking and heartfelt, this is poetry in motion.

Please note that this production contains short periods of flashing and strobe lighting effects.
