Audio Described Ballet

Photograph of ballet touch tour

Northern Ballet has asked to let you know about four audio described ballet performances in Yorkshire this season.

Northern Ballet encourage visually impaired patrons and their companion to take part in a free Touch Tour Insight before each audio described performance, which introduces elements of the production to aide in their understanding of the show. You can 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.

We attended a Touch Tour for Swan Lake earlier this year and everyone who went found that it really enhanced their experience of the performance. Here is a list of the performances coming up:

Wuthering Heights

Saturday 10 September, 2.00pm

West Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds


Romeo & Juliet

Saturday 17 September, 3.00pm.

Sheffield Lyceum Theatre


Romeo & Juliet

Saturday 15 October, 2.30pm

Bradford Alhambra Theatre


Beauty & the Beast

Saturday 17 December, 2.00pm
