In 2009 David Nixon invited Daniel to take part in the re-staging of “The Three Musketeers” for the Estonia National Ballet and also commissioned him to choreograph the fight scenes. The production was to be re-staged in 2014 for the Alberta Ballet in Canada.
As Northern Ballet is currently bringing “The Three Musketeers” back to its home Daniel has again been given the opportunity to revisit the fight choreography for the talented dancers who are part of the current cast.
Here is promotional video using the fight choreography filmed at the most appropriate and picturesque Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds.
David Nixon’s “The Three Musketeers” was nominated for Best New Dance Production at the Olivier Awards 2008 and the Winner of the Best Dance award at the M.E.N Theatre Awards 2007.
