Northern Ballet’s The Three Musketeers Touch Tour Insight and Audio Described Performance 

Saturday 27 October, 3.00pm at Sheffield Lyceum Theatre

We have been asked to let our clients know about the audio described performance and touch tour of this ballet:


In 17th century Paris, the mood is tense as d’Artagnan and the Three Musketeers embark on an action-packed quest to save the Queen’s reputation and the life of d’Artagnan’s love.

Join Northern Ballet this Autumn and see this tale unfold in a whirlwind of adventure, romance and intrigue, accompanied by Sir Malcolm Arnold’s sweeping score played live by the Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

A rip-roaring ballet with a classic love story at its heart, David Nixon’s The Three Musketeers is bound to leave a smile on your face!

Our audio described performance access days enable visually impaired patrons to enjoy a range of activities that enhance the enjoyment and understanding of ballet.

The day consists of Touch Tour Insight, which introduces elements of the production to aide in your understanding of the show. You will hear a description of the scenery, feel the props and costumes, and discover the shapes and quality of the movement from the ballet with the aid of Company dancers.   

The audio described performance, described by VocalEyes, enables patrons to enjoy the story of the ballet and the emotion and quality of movement accompanied by live music from Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

Northern Ballet’s production of The Three Musketeers will be performed at Sheffield Lyceum Theatre from Wednesday 24 October to Saturday 27 October. The audio described performance will take place on Saturday 27 October.

The Touch Tour Insight event will take place from 12:30 to 1:45pm and is free to visually impaired patrons and your companion. The audio described performance starts at 3.00pm. 

Ticket prices range from £12 to £38 and booking fees may apply. Should you require the support of a companion to attend the audio description, they will be eligible for a free ticket. For more information or to book, please call the theatre’s Box Office on 0114 249 6000.

Please make sure you inform the Box Office that you are booking for an audio described performance and let them know if you wish to attend the Touch Tour Insight, as it’s useful for us to know how many people to expect and also of any access needs you may have.
