As a Possibilities member you can enjoy an evening at the ballet with a private drinks reception, introductory talk from Northern Ballet, best-view seat, plus meet and greet with the dancers.

Immerse yourself in a mystical underwater world with this enchanting performance of The Little Mermaid by Northern Ballet.

When a young mermaid is finally allowed her first glimpse of life beyond the ocean, she is enthralled by what she sees. After falling desperately in love with a man, she will do anything she can to live a human life.

Northern Ballet's beautiful new ballet will re-imagine the classic Hans Christian Anderen fairytale and take you on a journey beneath the waves. 

The exclusive opportunity for Possibilities members is a must for all ballet fans. We're giving away 10 pairs of tickets to this stunning performance. Our Possibilities ballot winners will enjoy the show from one of the best seats in the house, as well as a private drinks and canapes reception, introductory talk from Northern Ballet and a meet and greet with some of the performers.
