Ballet North June 2017 Performance Announcement

June Performance Event Announcement:  


Based on the hilarious ballet inspired by the 1789 painting of Pierre-Antoine Baudouin, Ballet North's Wayward Daughter tells the tale of the misadventures of Lise and Widow Simone as they live life in a pastoral village and encounter various characters from the charming and handsome Colas to the eccentric Elan and his father Thomas.  Capturing a very comedic snapshot of what all can happen and go astray in village life, The Wayward Daughter is pure delight and a charming adventure the whole family will enjoy.  It's not every day you see an entire flock of dancing chickens or get blown off the stage by a tornado!!!
