When to see it
These events are part of the Autumn 2019 season.
Northern Ballet demonstrates its range and skill on the Linbury Theatre stage in a fascinating mixed programme. The Kingdom of Back is Morgann Runacre-Temple’s funny, moving and intimate portrait of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s sister, Nannerl, herself so talented yet forced into her brother’s shadow. Mlindi Kulashe’s choreographic debut work Mamela... (from his native Xhosa language’s word for ‘listen’) is haunting in its exploration of themes of imprisonment and escape. The programme is completed by Kenneth Tindall’s The Shape of Sound, a beautiful response to the emotions evoked by the changing seasons, mirrored in Max Richter’s recomposition of Vivaldi’s classic Le quattro stagioni (The Four Seasons).
