NBT Leading Soloists Pippa Moore and Christopher Hinton-Lewis are in Estonia this week for a performance of The Three Musketeers.

The production is being performed by the Estonian National Ballet. Pippa and Chris will perform the roles of D’Artagnan and Constance for one performance only on Friday 12 June.

NBT Artistic Director David Nixon has been working closely with the Estonian National Ballet to direct the work for them. The Three Musketeers was originally created for NBT in 2006 and was performed to great acclaim in venues throughout the UK including London, Edinburgh, Belfast, Bradford and Manchester.

David Nixon choreographed the ballet to a scenario by the Royal Ballet’s David Drew MBE and a specially arranged score of filmic and joyous music, from one of Britain’s greatest composers, Sir Malcolm Arnold.
