A tale of love and sacrifice at Curve

Get swept away by unrivalled storytelling, dance and live music as Northern Ballet performs Madame Butterfly.

It will be performed on Friday, June 5, and Saturday, June 6, at The Curve Theatre, Leicester.

The programme will bring world-class ballet to the doorstep of audiences in the region, offering the chance to enjoy two of Northern Ballet’s popular productions in one evening.

Madame Butterfly is choreographed by Artistic Director David Nixon OBE and is one of Northern Ballet’s most popular full-length productions.

In this heartbreakingly tragic ballet, audiences will be transported to Japan where the doomed love affair between American Naval Lieutenant, Pinkerton, and his young Japanese bride, Butterfly, begins.

Madly in love and prepared to sacrifice everything, Butterfly’s world falls apart when she is betrayed and forced into a dramatic climax.

Recreated especially for the new tour, Madame Butterfly is a two-act ballet featuring all new sets and is performed to the famous Puccini score played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.
