Northern Ballet: Geisha

For geisha, beauty and honour are everything.

Brought vividly to life by Kenneth Tindall, the creator of Northern Ballet’s acclaimed Casanova (as seen on Sky Arts), unravel the mysteries of Geisha.

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, encounters from beyond the grave unleash an unexpected vengeance on their world. An act of true devotion offers the only chance for redemption.

Based on remarkable true events, experience Northern Ballet’s exceptional dancers in this must-see ballet.
