A tragic deception sets Aladdin on the path to treasures even greater than the gold and jewels he seeks. The classical ballet company are dazzling as always in this adventure that uncovers spells, riches and, of course, true love.
BTUK features a cast of some of the most superbly talented dancers handpicked from across the globe. As one of the newer ballet companies, their choreography can be relied upon to be exciting and up to date. Their shows are always fast to sell out at Arlington and, like any fairy tale, have to be seen to truly be believed.
