Casanova Unmasked

Tortoise & the Hare

Following the sell-out successes of Ugly Duckling, Three Little Pigs and Elves & the Shoemaker and the TV adaptations for CBeebies, Northern Ballet bring their magic to Tortoise & the Hare.


Once upon a time there was a speedy Hare who never stopped talking about how fast he could run. Tired of being teased for his slowness, Tortoise challenged him to a race. No one thought he could win, but life is full of surprises!

Bringing this much-loved Aesop’s fable to life, Tortoise & the Hare is the perfect opportunity for your little ones to enjoy live ballet, music and theatre.

These child friendly performances last approximately 40 minutes.
