In this original retelling of the Italian story by Carlo Collodi, a lonely carpenter wishes for their puppet Pinocchio to come to life.

After their dream comes true by the magic of a wishing well, Pinocchio sets out to prove himself worthy of becoming a real boy.

This child friendly 40 minute ballet has been created especially for children and their families to experience live dance, music, and theatre together.

Pinocchio will be performed to music by Ian Stephens, played by live members of Northern Ballet Sinfonia at every venue.

Sets have been designed by Frankie Bradshaw, lighting by Abbi Fearnley, and costumes designed by Carley Marsh and Kim Brassley.

Northern Ballet is one of the UK’s leading ballet companies and the widest touring ballet company in the UK.
