The Tortoise and The Hare - Relaxed Performance

24th Mar 2016

Tortoise-and-the-Hare 2 The Tortoise and the Hare 3

On at the Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield

Ready, steady, GO! New ballet for children, Tortoise & the Hare, is all set and raring to go.

Northern Ballet brings the much-loved Aesop's fable Tortoise & the Hare to life in an enchanting and heart-warming production.

Once upon a time there was a speedy Hare who never stopped talking about how fast he could run. Tired of being teased for his slowness, Tortoise challenged him to a race. No one thought he could win, but life is full of surprises!

This new ballet follows on from the hugely successful Ugly Duckling, Three Little Pigs, and Elves & the Shoemaker, as well as the TV adaptions for Cbeebies. We hope that the wonderful story-telling and memorable characters of Aesop's imagination, combined with the magic of live ballet, music and theatre, will continue to delight the whole family.
