And as it plays its final night at Leeds Grand theatre tonight, (March 12) before moving on to Sheffield as part of a four-venue Spring tour, we pay tribute to the cast and production team with these stunning photographs taken by our award winning photographer Simon Hulme.

Adored by audiences for over 100 years, Swan Lake is the most famous ballet in the world.

Performed to Tchaikovsky’s beautiful and moving score, and played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia, this production is choreographed by David Nixon OBE, who has been artistic director of Northern Ballet since 2001.
