The whole ethos of the company is that each member is a first rate actor as well as being a great dancer which has made them one of this country's best loved companies.
The story of Beauty and the Beast seems to have first appeared back in the 18th century and ever since has been one of our most popular fairy stories with any number of incarnations varying greatly in both content and style.
Though it doesn't always have a happy ending this one of course does – an essential element for generations weaned on Walt Disney.
Here the dancers move through the story with the aid of music by composers such as Saint-Sens, Bizet, Debussy and Poulenc whose Organ Concerto is the ideal sound for introducing us to the Beast himself.
On opening night the role of the Prince was danced by Kenneth Tindall and the Beast by Giuliano Contadini.
Beauty herself was Martha Leebolt who gave us a stunning interpretation of a young girl who learns that good looks are by no means everything.
Northern Ballet has, over the years, given us any number of great stories from Bram Stoker's Dracula to Nutcracker.
Here we return to slightly more traditional dance but still with everything that has made any Northern Ballet production one of the must-see events of the year.
It runs until Saturday.
