Ballet Theatre UK was founded by Christopher Moore and has, over the last decade, become one of the UK’s most beloved touring ballet companies. Touring both nationally and internationally, the Company aim to raise awareness of the classical art form within the community by being accessible to people of all ages and walks of life. Since its foundation in 2008, the Company has created twelve full-length ballets including critically acclaimed productions of The Snow Queen, Romeo and Juliet and A Christmas Carol. 2018 will see two new titles added to the repertoire. Firstly, in the Spring, a magical adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and in the Autumn, a new adaptation of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, which forms part of the Company’s ten-year anniversary celebrations.
