Northern Ballet brings Madame Butterfly to Bromley

Puccini’s classic tale of doomed love comes to the Churchill.

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.

David Nixon said: ‘Perpetuum Mobile is a beautiful neo-classical work and Madame Butterfly a wonderful dramatic narrative piece; so this programme is a perfect introduction of the two faces of Northern Ballet. Our Company has incredibly talented dancers and these two works will provide the opportunity for audiences to see the dancers performing at their most physical as well as demonstrating their abilities as dance-actors of the highest standard.Introducing this new strand of touring is designed to enrich the dance offering within the region, challenging the perceptions of which stories can be told through ballet and providing audiences with something different than Swan Lake or The Nutcracker.’
