2019 witnesses the first ever collaboration of Opera North and Phoenix Dance Theatre for the reworking of the iconic The Rite of Spring. Enthused by the organisations’ partnership, they now bring together their youth groups.
Drawing inspiration from the Greek folktales, Aesop’s Fables, both companies have selected their more senior groups to come together to perform a piece in the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre.
