‘Victoria’ at Sadler’s Wells Theatre
Northern Ballet will be performing their brand new production of ‘Victoria’ at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in the next few weeks, and we will be providing an Audio Description for one of the performances for visually impaired patrons.
The day includes a chance for patrons (and companions if required), to take part in an insight workshop and touch tour to learn more about the production.
We encourage you to arrive at the theatre at 11.30am to take part in a Touch Tour Insight, which introduces elements of the production to aide in your 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. You can also listen to descriptions of the movement and feel the dancers as they demonstrate some of the key steps. Or, if you want to know how the movements feel, you can have a go and partner up with one of our dancers and let them guide you through steps from the show.
Don’t worry if you can’t be at the theatre for the Touch Tour Insight, as our Audio Describer will give a detailed description of the set, costumes, story and characters 15 minutes before the performance in the pre-show notes.
The performance will then be brought to life in your mind’s eye with a detailed description of the movement, action and drama that takes place to the music played live by the Northern Ballet Sinfonia.
