Today I've had notification from The Lowry that the scheduled performances of Swan Lake have been replaced by a mixed programme on the first night and Dangerous Liaisons Thursday-Saturday. The performances are scheduled for 05-08 May.

 

Fingers and everything else crossed that the pandemic situation has improved enough for these shows to go ahead.

Well, at least there's (currently?) still something in the slot.

 

I'm hoping to get to see Swan Lake in Leeds the following week - I've got tickets.

 

I'm quite happy with the change of programme - the mixed bill has an interesting mix.  I thought it was going to be the same programme they presented at Leeds Playhouse but they have taken out some of the duets and swapped in For an Instant which I adored when I saw it live in 2019.  I love Dangerous Liaisons too.

Well you've got to give Northern Ballet 10 out of 10 for effort.

 

I've just had emails from both The Lowry and Leeds Grand with re-re-re-scheduled dates.  Hopefully these performances will be able to go ahead.

 

Swan Lake - Leeds Grand - 17-29 May

 

Dangerous Liaisons - The Lowry - 01-05 June

 

 

Everything crossed that these performances will be able to go ahead.

Nothing is straightforward at the moment!

 

Swan Lake at Leeds Grand has been moved again.  It is now on in Leeds from 17-26 June (still with the checkerboard seating arrangement).

 

I spoke to a very helpful gentleman at the box office and he has been able to sort out my ticket allocations to my satisfaction.

 

Fingers crossed that these dates can go ahead.

Dangerous Liaisons: 1 – 10 June 2021

Contemporary Cuts 2021: 11 & 12 June 2021

Swan Lake: 17 – 26 June 2021

 

Northern Ballet plans to return to touring for the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Leeds-based company, which has not been able to perform outside of its home city since November 2019, will hold a limited three venue tour to Salford, London and Leeds this June.

 

The Company will open its tour with a revival of David Nixon OBE’s Dangerous Liaisons with performances at The Lowry, Salford from 1 – 5 June 2021, followed by performances at Sadler’s Wells, London from 8 – 10 June 2021. Inspired by the original scandalous novel and acclaimed Hollywood retellings, danced to Vivaldi’s rousing The Four Seasons, Dangerous Liaisons is the bodice-ripping tale of two bored aristocrats as they spin a web of heartbreak and ruin.

Also at Sadler’s Wells, from 11 – 12 June 2021 Northern Ballet will perform Contemporary Cuts2021, a mixed programme of contemporary and modern ballet works including the London première of Kenneth Tindall’s States of Mind and Amaury Lebrun’s For an Instant as well as Demis Volpi’s Little Monsters and excerpts from Jonathan Watkins’ 1984 and Cathy Marston’s Jane Eyre.

Closing the season, Northern Ballet will return home to Leeds Grand Theatre for performances of David Nixon OBE’s Swan Lake, a unique adaptation of the traditional tale where, haunted by a childhood tragedy resulting in the death of his beloved brother, Anthony looks to the water for answers – in whatever form they take.

David Nixon OBE, Artistic Director of Northern Ballet, said: “We are thrilled to be able to announce this return to touring. As the pandemic has continued, so has our hunger to perform live and although this is only a short tour, I truly hope that these first steps are the beginning of a return to normality. We cannot wait to see our audiences in person and hope that this tour will open the doors to more performances, more venues and full audiences in the near future.”

 

Dangerous Liaisons and Swan Lake will feature live music played by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.Contemporary Cuts 2021 will be performed to recorded music apart from live piano for the Jane Eyre excerpt. Dangerous Liaisons and Contemporary Cuts 2021 performances will be performed in full costume but ‘black box style’ without sets. Audiences will be socially distanced.
