Madame Butterfly comes to the Churchill, Bromley

Puccini’s classic opera by Northern Ballet.

Madame Butterfly

Be swept away by unrivalled storytelling, dance and live music as Northern Ballet performs Madame Butterfly with Perpetuum Mobile at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley from 12th – 13th June 2015. Recently awarded Best Company at the European Taglioni Ballet Awards, Northern Ballet specialise in creating and performing classical story ballets. This 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 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.

The programme also features Perpetuum Mobile, choreographed by Christopher Hampson, Artistic Director of Scottish Ballet. Performed to Bach’s Violin Concerto in E Major, the 17-minute long Perpetuum Mobile provides an excellent introduction to the technical and athletic talents of Northern Ballet’s dancers. The piece showcases the incredible strength and prowess of the Company to leave audiences breathless.
