Nonetheless, the sell-out success of Northern Ballet's previous ballets for families Ugly Duckling, Thee Little Pigs and Elves & the Shoemaker has resulted in high hopes for their latest ballet: Tortoise & The Hare reached our ears. The show will be arriving on Salder's Wells on 27th May and Richmond Theatre on 1st June.
In a series short performances, director-choreographers Dreda Blow and Sebastian Loe, who created Northern Ballet’s first children’s ballet, Ugly Duckling, in 2012, and Bruno Merz’s live musical score, transform the fairy tale into a brand new mini-drama, balancing the moral message of friendship with ballet, music and theatre.
These child friendly performances last approximately 40 minutes.
Suitable for ages 5-10
