5784102Northern Ballet: Victoria
DateSaturday 9th March 2019 to Saturday 16th March 2019
DescriptionCoinciding with the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of Britain's most iconic monarchs, Victoria tells the astounding life story of Queen Victoria through the eyes of her youngest child and lifelong companion Beatrice. Travelling back in time from Victoria's death bed, Beatrice relives her memories of her mother as a secluded widow before discovering her anew as she transcribes the Queen's intimate diaries. From the accession of the teenage princess Victoria, Beatrice uncovers her mother's challenging relationship with her own mother; the truth about her passionate marriage to Prince Albert; and her ambiguous relationship with John Brown; as well as key events of her reign from the Opium Wars to the Great Exhibition. Wife, mother, lover, Empress; Victoria presents the various, often conflicting faces of this emblematic monarch, and shows how an act of daughterly devotion became one of history's most notorious revisions. Victoria is choreographed and directed by the internationally acclaimed Cathy Marston, who is also responsible for the recent creation of Northern Ballet's Jane Eyre which was nominated for a South Bank Sky Arts Award. Sets and costumes are designed by Steffen Aarfing whose recent projects include designs for Krol Roger at the Royal Opera House. Lighting is designed by Alastair West who was recently nominated at the Knight of Illumination Awards for his designs for Northern Ballet's Casanova. Dramaturgy is by British director and writer Uzma Hameed whose previous projects include Woolf Works for The Royal Ballet. The scenario for Victoria has been written by Marston and Hameed in collaboration. Victoria is set to an original score by Philip Feeney whose previous scores for Northern Ballet include Jane Eyre and Cinderella.
