COURAGEOUS AND COMPULSIVE CLEOPATRA
A mesmerising performance from the Leeds-based dance company
Northern Ballet are renowned for their stunning hybrid of classical ballet and contemporary movement and this retelling of the story of Cleopatra beautifully illustrates the Company’s strengths.
The show takes the audience on a journey akin to wandering through an extravagant museum exhibition, effectively bringing Ancient Egypt to life.
Production and choreography– from the hieroglyphics projected onto the backdrop to the stances adopted by the dancers – combine to evoke the era in an absorbing spectacle.
