Adapted from John Boyne’s bestselling novel, this heart-breaking new production is the first full-length dance adaptation of this world-famous story.
Telling the story of an unlikely friendship blossoming through the disturbing events of World War II, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas sees a child’s innocent curiosity lead to a devastating conclusion. Previously adapted for a 2008 film by Miramax, this world-first dance adaptation is choreographed by Northern Ballet’s Artistic Associate Daniel de Andrade. It features an original score by Oscar-nominated composer Gary Yershon, sets and costumes designed by Mark Bailey and lighting by Tim Mitchell, with Dramatic Coach Patricia Doyle completing the creative team.
