Northern Ballet: Merlin

12 Jun 2022

Tickets: £15


Starts 2pm

Inspired by the story of the mythical wizard, Northern Ballet’s Merlin will take you on a sweeping epic adventure of heartbreak, hope and more than a little magic.

Choreographed by Olivier Award-winning Drew McOnie (Broadway’s King Kong and Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom), expect an enchanting spectacle.

Don’t miss the legend reawakened through Northern Ballet’s blend of classical ballet and unrivalled storytelling.

The ballet was filmed at Leeds Grand Theatre in November 2021 in front of a live audience, with original music by Grant Olding (One Man Two Guvnors, National Theatre), played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia. The film capture was directed by Ross MacGibbon.

Running time: 2 hours 10 minutes (including interval)

This production contains short periods of flashing and strobe lighting effects.
