Inspired by the much-loved fairytale, Puss in Boots tells the story of a remarkable cat who, despite being both clever and charming, always seems to bring his master bad luck.
This child-friendly 40-minute ballet follows their adventure as they meet a flurry of characters and even come face to face with royalty! It has been created especially for children and their families to experience live dance, music and theatre together.
Puss in Boots follows in the footsteps of the Company’s five previous children’s ballets, all of which have achieved huge popularity both live on stage and in CBeebies TV adaptations.
Choreographed by Jenna Lee, founder and creative director of JLee Productions and former English National Ballet Soloist, Puss in Boots will feature set designs by Ali Allen, lighting by Alastair West, costume designs by Jenna Lee in collaboration with Kim Brassley and Carley Marsh, and music composed by Richard Norriss, played live by members of Northern Ballet Sinfonia at every venue.
Daniel de Andrade, Northern Ballet’s artistic director of children’s ballets, said: ‘We are delighted that Puss in Boots is returning to Leeds before setting off on tour around the country. The production previously sold out at its world première in October, so we are thrilled that its return this Easter means even more local families can experience the magic of live ballet and theatre together.’
