More Information on Wuthering Heights
Immerse yourself in Cathy and Heathcliff’s turbulent love affair as the ‘best dance actors in the world’ capture the spirit of Wuthering Heights and the untamed beauty of the Yorkshire moors.
Passionate and obsessive, Cathy and Heathcliff’s love is as unruly and dangerous as the moors that surround them.
As children they are inseparable, but over time their childish affection deepens into an overwhelming and devastating love.
Emily Brontë’s romantic masterpiece is performed to live music by Golden Globe and Academy Award nominated Claude-Michel Schönberg (Les Misérables, Miss Saigon & Northern Ballet’s Cleopatra) with choreography by David Nixon OBE.
A treasured classic reimagined. A timeless ballet for a modern audience.
On Saturday 10 September the 7.30pm performance of Wuthering Heights will be a celebration of the incredible career of Northern Ballet Senior Artist Hironao Takahashi, who has danced with the company for 24 years. During the evening Hiro will dance the role of Edgar.
