Northern Ballet: Victoria Tickets

London Ballet & Dance
Northern Ballet: Victoria makes its way to London Sadler's Wells as part of its highly anticipated UK tour.
Queen Victoria’s irrepressible love for Albert sparked a royal dynasty, but his untimely death brought the world’s most powerful woman to her knees with grief. Northern Ballet’s reputation for outstanding narrative works has been sealed by their sensational streak of award-winning and critically acclaimed productions. Choreographed by Cathy Marston (Jane Eyre), their latest creation Victoria reveals the life of one of history’s most intriguing women – a life so fascinating that her daughter Beatrice tried to rewrite history. Retold 200 years after Victoria’s birth, this major new production features dramaturgy by Uzma Hameed (Wayne McGregor’s Woolf Works) and an original score by Philip Feeney (Jane Eyre). "Cathy Marston catches that fierceness in deft, character-driven storytelling… a vivid performance from the whole company" THE INDEPENDENT on Jane Eyre Victoria is a co-production between Northern Ballet and The National Ballet of Canada

    Just amazing! You walk in knowing nothing, walk out feeling like you know Queen Victoria and her daughter. Excellent story telling through dance and orchestral music.

    I very much enjoyed the ballet, Victoria and really appreciate programme with the info of the ballet making watching the ballet a lot more understandable.

    Paying 20% on top of the ticket price is just greedy of the agency. Won’t use again.

    It was my first time to the ballet. I really enjoyed it but was glad I read up on the storyline as it would have been confusing.

    I enjoyed the show. Although I think it’s not really for 20s as I don’t see a lot of people my age there.... first part of show was bit tedious and I really enjoyed the second jalf

    We loved this ballet - especially the music and the performance by the orchestra. As we attended a matinee we did not see the A-team of dancers but this didn’t detract from our enjoyment - although in future we might try to see the principal dancers. It was just as well we bought and read the programme beforehand because otherwise we would have had little idea of what was going on; the constant switching from present to past was confusing. The use of the red boxes was a clever way of showing the struggle for power. We enjoyed the slightly amusing way the birth of all Victoria’s babies were born! It was a pity about the very noisy curtain! Generally, it was a bit too long and there could be a few cuts. We have seen all Northern Ballet’s productions over many years and this one rates quite highly.

    I really enjoyed the dancing and although the tickets I purchased were only £15 each, I could see everything clearly. My husband was a bit disappointed that the male dancers didn't leap about a bit more! Not yet a ballet fan obviously but working on it.

    I never buy a programme and found the flyer wanting. There was no brief synopsis, no indication of how many acts, how long it would last, who did the choreography or wrote the music. I had no idea what was going on but enjoyed the dancing and the costumes. The choreography was adequate and I thought the music was awful.
