Passion, tragedy, fierce devotion. Queen Victoria’s diaries revealed a life so fascinating that her daughter Beatrice tried to rewrite history.

Her irrepressible love for Albert sparked a royal dynasty. But his untimely death brought the world's most powerful woman to her knees with grief.

Choreographed by Cathy Marston, creator of Northern Ballet’s acclaimed Jane Eyre.

Victoria is a co-production between Northern Ballet and The National Ballet of Canada
