GEISHA – Northern Ballet

Geisha is a new full length 2 act ballet for the Northern Ballet’s 50th anniversary. For live orchestra with the Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

For Geisha, beauty and honour is everything.

Two young women, bound by vows of friendship, find themselves in the midst of a collision between East and West. As their lives are torn painfully apart, a promise from beyond the grave offers the only chance for redemption.
