Ugly Duckling is Northern Ballet’s first production created especially for children and comes to Sadler’s Wells for one day only during the company’s run of The Great Gatsby.

A poor duckling is lonely and fed-up, shunned by those around her who see her as too ugly to fit in. She tries to make friends with fellow ducklings, frogs, cats and even a fox, but, realising she is not like any of these animals, she is left sad and alone. Follow the duckling on her journey as she overcomes her troubles and turns into a beautiful swan, beginning a happy new life.

Retelling the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, Ugly Duckling is the perfect opportunity for children to experience the magic of live ballet, music and theatre.
