Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s work performed outside the capital…

Three ballets, one unforgettable night
This is a rare opportunity to see MacMillan’s work performed outside the capital, as Northern Ballet’s dancers take on three mesmerising and beautifully complex ballets.
Each one has something different to offer. The first, Las Hermanas, is a dark tale of repression and jealousy. It will take you back to a time when women couldn’t marry until their elder sisters were wed – find out what happens when the youngest sister refuses to wait in line. The second is a complete contrast. Concerto has no story, it’s an abstract piece that showcases MacMillan’s mastery of classical composition, so this is a chance to see Northern Ballet as you’ve never seen them before.
Finally, the third ballet will give you a glimpse of contemporary classical style, as Northern Ballet present one of MacMillan’s later ballets. Gloria was created in 1980, while the other two were earlier works from the 1960s, so you’ll see how his work developed. This heartbreaking depiction of war takes inspiration from Vera Brittain’s famous memoir, Testament of Youth.
Northern Ballet has already received rave reviews for its performances at The Royal Opera House and Bradford Alhambra, but this will be the last outing – ever. This is the first time Northern Ballet has ever performed MacMillan’s work and it may also be the last, so catch it while you can.
