The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (2017)


Based upon the book “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas” by John Boyne and by special arrangement with Miramax Daniel’s production of its ballet interpretation with Northern Ballet had its world premiere on the 25th of May 2017.

Divided by a barbed wire fence, Bruno doesn’t understand anything about where Shmuel lives, or who he is. To him, he’s just a new friend – a boy wearing a pair of striped pyjamas.

As this unlikely friendship blossoms against the backdrop of the unthinkable events of World War II, Bruno’s childlike curiosity leads this poignant story to a devastating conclusion.       “Click to visit the dedicated Northern Ballet site”
