Casanova comes to The Lowry

Casanova comes to The Lowry

Northern Ballet is bringing history’s most notorious lover to Salford in May 2017 with its sensual new ballet Casanova. The internationally acclaimed company will transport audiences to 18th century Venice, telling the story of the infamous Italian adventurer in a seductive masquerade of passion and politics. Northern Ballet will perform Casanova at The Lowry in Salford from 3 – 6 May 2017 as part of its World Première Tour.

In Northern Ballet’s Casanova the fiercely intellectual Giacomo Casanova leads a controversial life consumed by his desires. He dabbles in careers as a scam artist, violinist, alchemist and church cleric but with a penchant for gambling and women, his exploits lead him into a whirlwind of scandal and excess resulting in imprisonment and exile. A true story so sensational you won’t believe it’s real.

Casanova will be choreographed by award-winning Kenneth Tindall who was most recently nominated for Best Classical Choreography and the Emerging Artist Award at the 2015 National Dance Awards. 

Tickets are on sale now CLICK BELOW or by contacting the Box Office on 0843 208 6000.

Casanova is the first of an unprecedented three full-length World Premieres to be held by Northern Ballet in 2017. It will be followed by the upcoming World Premières of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas in May 2017 and The Little Mermaid in September 2017.
