Ballet Workshop

Ballets by LGBTQ artists

23 Aug to 28 Aug

Shows: £15 | Open rehearsals: £10
Produced and presented by Capital Ballet

Hosted By The Cockpit


Up-coming choreographers, celebrating the music of LGBTQ+ composers and themes, will create three new ballets especially for the workshop.

This will include a new version of the Tchaikovsky classic Swan Lake by international choreographer and former Sarasota Ballet Soloist, Jamie Carter.

Audiences are offered behind the scenes access to the creative process with four open rehearsals (Monday to Thursday).

Come and see our artists at work as see how a ballet is made!

The week will end with three performances of new work created especially on The Cockpit stage with live musical accompaniment.


Shows: Friday 27 - 7:30pm and Saturday 28 August - 1:45pm and 7:30pm
Plus 4 ticketed open rehearsals on Monday 23 to Thursday 26 August  - 7pm


For this show we are returning to normal operation where ticket holders choose their own seats on admission to the auditorium. 

We also request that everyone wear a mask when moving around the building, wash their hands often and practice self-distancing.  We have reduced capacities to allow for this.

You and your bubble will be invited to choose a seat and self-distance yourselves from others.

We will be running a normal bar service with extra tables for your drinking comfort.
