Tortoise & the Hare
A Northern Ballet Production
Choreographed by Dreda Blow and Sebastian Loe
Composed by Bruno Merz
The race is on in Northern Ballet’s Tortoise & the Hare.
When a cheeky Hare won’t stop boasting about how fast he can run, thoughtful Tortoise decides it is time to join him in a race. No one thinks Tortoise can win, but when Hare gets distracted by games and treats, Tortoise might surprise us all.
The perfect introduction to live ballet and music, your little ones will cheer along as a playful cast of characters re-tell this classic tale.
General booking opens 9 November. Members’ priority booking opens 24 October.
Suitable for all ages.
