Northern Ballet’s critical and commercial smash hit ‘Casanova’ ‘a modern masterpiece’ The Stage – was created by Kenny Tindall and Ian Kelly – based on Kelly’s award winning 2008 biography, ballet scenario by Ian Kelly and Kenny Tindall, choreography by Tindall, design by Christopher Oram and score, composed especially for the scenario, by Kerry Muzzey.

‘To write, in pictures and in dance, what I had first imagined out of the dry historic record, to see characters literary come alive on stage and dance -  will count always as one of the greatest pleasures and challenges of my artistic life’

'Be the flame, not the moth' Throw caution to the wind. Be led into temptation. Unmask Casanova with Northern Ballet. Casanova is touring nationwide until May 2017.

"a superb collaboration between some of the finest and most innovative creative artists currently working in the theatre"

"Having enjoyed a hugely-successful national tour earlier this year, playing to packed-out houses and receiving a string of rave reviews to boot, Northern Ballet’s sumptuous and seductive Casanova makes a welcome return for two final performances at Manchester’s Palace Theatre, this time in front of the cameras for a big-screen cinema broadcast later this year."
