Win a pair of tickets to Victoria

Posted on May 17, 2019

Win a pair of cinema tickets to see the brand new film of the ballet Victoria performed by Northern Ballet, which will be screened in more than 300 cinemas across the UK for one night only on June 25.

It’s a unique opportunity for the lucky winner to see Northern Ballet’s sumptuous production if you didn’t get chance to see it at the theatre.

Victoria is choreographed and directed by Cathy Marston, with the score composed by Philip Feeney. The ballet will be introduced on screen by Marston and, during the 15-minute interval, a video will be shown of her and designer Steffen Aarfing giving an insight into the creation of this new production.

The ballet marks the bicentenary year of Queen Victoria, who was born in 1819 and was crowned only 18 years later. The queen’s love for her husband, Prince Albert, created a royal dynasty, but his untimely death brought the world’s most powerful woman to her knees with grief.

Referencing Victoria’s personal diaries as a dramatic core, Marston’s ballet reveals the many sides of the woman who gave her name to the Victorian age, told through the eyes of her youngest child and lifelong companion, Princess Beatrice.

The evening promises to be a treat for ballet and music fans, and families of all ages, and it’s only in cinemas for one night, so enter by emailing competitions@dancing-times.co.uk by midday on June 17 to be in with a chance of winning.

Terms and conditions:

One pair of tickets will be issued to the winner for cinema screening of Victoria performed by Northern Ballet on June 25, 2019, which are non-transferable.

The winner can choose which cinema they’d like to attend from this list.

Tickets will be available for the winner to pick up from the box office of their chosen cinema on the same day of the screening – June 25. The prize is as stated; no cash or other alternatives will be offered.
