ANGELINA BALLERINA'S BIG AUDITION

Everyone’s favourite dancing mouse takes to the stage in a real live ballet. Join Angelina and her friends as they prepare to audition for the prestigious Camembert Academy of Performing Arts. Angelina loves to dance and dreams of becoming a famous ballerina. Miss Lilly is her ballet teacher and Alice Nimbletoes, her best friend – characters that cannot fail to charm with their love of colour and pretty costumes.

Angelina Mousling is a fictional mouse and the star of some twenty enormously popular children’s books, which became an animated TV series in 2002, then a musical and now a ballet.

In this production Angelina prepares for her most important performance ever … in front of the Camembert Academy judges.

“Guaranteed to charm an army of small children — boys, note, as well as girls — and their minders.” The Sunday Times, UK

Miss Lilly prepares Angelina for her big chance to dance in front of the judges and, although excited about the possibility of an exciting new adventure, Angelina worries about leaving home and Alice behind. During her audition at the Camembert Academy, Angelina meets lots of new friends who introduce her to exciting new twists on traditional ballet, from jazz to hip hop. Will Angelina's dream of joining the Academy end in tears, or will this be an exciting new chapter in her life?

This magical production features the Royal New Zealand Ballet dancers performing to a recorded arrangement of Tchaikovsky's music. With choreography (Antony Dawson), sets (Al Riches) and costumes (Wizzy Shawyer) from the English National Ballet.

Angelina Ballerina's Big Audition is the perfect introduction for children to the magical world of ballet.

An English National Ballet Production.
