In his follow-up to the sumptuously sexy Casanova, choreographer and former Northern Ballet dancer Kenneth Tindall turns to another remarkable true story for his brand new full-length ballet.

Two young women, bound by vows of friendship, find themselves in the midst of a collision between east and west. As their lives are torn painfully apart, a promise from beyond the grave offers the only chance for redemption.

The visually stunning Geisha sees Tindall reunite with Casanova set and costume designer Christopher Oram, and is set to a newly commissioned score from award-winning composer Alexandra Harwood.
