Wuthering Heights

Passionate and obsessive, Cathy and Heathcliff's love is as unruly and dangerous as the Yorkshire moors that surround them.

As children they are inseparable, running wild and free on the moors, but over time their childish affection deepens into an overwhelming love – a devastating force that even death cannot destroy.

Northern Ballet is one of the UK's leading ballet companies whose dancers' ability to capture the spirit of their characters draws audiences into the story in a way that makes our productions more than just dance.

With an original score by celebrated composer Claude-Michel Schönberg, known for his West End and Broadway hits Les Misérables and Miss Saigon as well as Northern Ballet's Cleopatra, see this turbulent love story brought to life in Northern Ballet's adaptation of Emily Brontë's romantic masterpiece.
