Dream has received standing ovations throughout its tour with its witty references to both sporting competition and Jubilee celebrations past and present. Exploring the fantasy and ritual of weddings, Noces by French choreographer Angelin Preljocaj is an astonishing spectacle of dynamic movement and evocative costumes performed to Igor Stravinsky’s exquisite score Les Noces.

Virtual Descent is a new piece by awardwinning Company dancer and house choreographer Eleesha Drennan, set to a recording of a newly-commissioned percussion concerto from BBC National Orchestra of Wales’ resident composer Mark Bowden.

Northern Ballet Mixed Programme Wednesday 05 – Sunday 09 June

Northern Ballet return with a Mixed Programme that can only be seen at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre. Dutch dance master Hans van Manen has created more than 100 short classical ballets during his illustrious 60 year career with, amongst many others, Nederlands Dans Theater and the Dutch National Ballet. Northern Ballet dancers perform van Manen’s Concertante, a classical ballet inspired by and set to Frank Martin’s Petite Symphonie Concertante. We dare you not to be moved by the breathtaking Angels in the Architecture which makes a welcome return to Northern Ballet’s programme. Created by the American choreographer Mark Godden and danced to Aaron Copland’s beautiful Appalachian Spring, it is based on the lives of the Shaker people.

Kenneth Tindall’s star is on the rise. The British dance maker, who is also a Premier Dancer with Northern Ballet, created his debut piece Project#1 for the 2012 Mixed Programme. It won the Bundesjungendballett Production Prize at the 26th Choreography Competition in Hanover. This much anticipated follow up is not to be missed.
