Join Ballet Theatre UK on this dazzling re-telling of this exotic classic tale brought to life through the entrancing magic of classical ballet.

Tricked by an evil sorcerer, Aladdin sets out on a quest in search for the ultimate treasure. Deceived, Aladdin is left alone in a dark and damp cave to where he will uncover a life changing object - a dusty old lamp.

With just one rub of the magical lamp, Aladdin’s journey will sweep you into an exotic world full of daring adventure, enchanting spells, unbelievable riches, treachery and of course true love.

The company was founded in 2008 by Artistic Director Christopher Moore and has rapidly become one of the UK’s most popular touring companies. An innovative classical dance company, with a bold and unique approach, it raises awareness of dance within the community by being accessible to people from all ages and walks of life. Moore takes inspiration from an eclectic mix of classical dance, theatre, popular culture and literature which in turn allows him to further explore and develop the timeless classical ballets and to create new and innovative original productions. Theatres and their audiences are continually captivated with the BTUK productions, consequently the theatre managers are always keen to invite them back.

To its repertoire of productions such as ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ ‘The Snow Queen’ and ‘A Christmas Carol,’ BTUK has added ‘The Nutcracker’ and ‘The Little Mermaid.’
