Nelson Academy of Dance- Tales of Beatrix Potter & The Jewels

Friday 23rd-Saturday 24th August 2019

Beatrix Potter’s beloved characters come to life as dancers of the Nelson Academy of Dance perform tales from the famous author. Peter Rabbit, Mrs Tiggywinkle and Jeremy Fisher the dapper frog, take to the stage for a festive performance that will delight children and adults alike.

Squirrel Nutkin, 2 Bad Mice, Pigling Bland, Country Mice, Tabitha Twitchett, and all the other characters will take you back to your childhood memories.

As can be expected from the Nelson Academy of Dance you will be treated to a wonderful set and stunning costumes, making this a performance not to be missed.

The Tales of Beatrix Potter is running as a double bill with The Jewels: Emerald, Ruby and Diamonds.

Both ballets feature music by well-known composers, with Tales of Beatrix Potter arranged by John Lanchbery.

Gillian Francis is delighted to welcome back Jordan Nelson in this year’s performances.

Jordan just finished his first season with Saint Louis Ballet under Gen Horiuchi and couldn’t be more excited for what is still to come.
