About The Mother

As a young single mother sets out to save her child, she must face fantastic creatures, impossible trials and cross the line between life and death itself. Will she succumb to the forces of evil, or will the power of motherhood prevail?

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s wintry tale, The Mother is a breathtakingly spectacular and compelling production, combining narrative dance and drama.

Starring international superstar Natalia Osipova (principal of the Royal Ballet, London) and multi-award winning Jonathan Goddard.

With original, live music by Frank Moon and Dave Price. Choreographed by Arthur Pita, (credits include the 5 star critically acclaimed The Metamorphosis, Women Beware Women and The Glass Menagerie).

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Mother are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
