Ballet premier at Bolton college

Pupils at the Astley Bridge worked with the English National Ballet to appear in the premiere of its new production in Bolton.

29th June 2009 - 4th July 2009

The prestigious English National Ballet premiered its new production on Saturday 4th July 2009 at Thornleigh Salesian College, Bolton.

Members of the ballet company worked with pupils at the Astley Bridge school for a week running up to the performance, preparing the pupils at the school to appear in the Saturday performance. The new production has been inspired by the recent Ballets Russes performance by English National Ballet at Sadler’s Wells.

The company was invited to stage workshops with the children, aged 11-18 years, as part of Find Your Talent Bolton.

After its premiere in Bolton the production was taken to the Royal Festival Hall.
