Ugly Duckling - Ballet description


Ugly Duckling is Northern Ballet’s first production especially for children and will be performed for one day only at Sadler’s Wells this spring, during the company’s run of The Great Gatsby.



A poor duckling is lonely and fed-up, shunned by those around her who see her as too ugly to fit in. She tries to make friends with fellow ducklings, frogs, cats and even a fox, but realising she is not like any of these animals either she is left sad and alone. Follow the duckling on her journey as she overcomes her troubles and turns into abeautiful swan, beginning a happy new life.



Retelling the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, Northern Ballet's Ugly Duckling is the perfect opportunity to introduce your little ones to the magic of live ballet, music and theatre. These child friendly performances are just 45 minutes long.
