A Christmas Cabaret – Rachel Dean and Matthew Bellwood

Acclaimed performers Rachel Dean and Matthew Bellwood invite you to join them for two very different interpretations of Christmas in a special night of story, dance and music.

Nativity is a full-body collision with the enduring power of the myth and magic of the Virgin Mary. Rachel Dean uses movement, song and things that sparkle to create an irreverent and at times surprisingly devotional solo performance. This engaging solo performance is accompanied by an eclectic, lively and decidedly seasonal soundtrack.

St Nicholas and the Wicked Butcher is the tale of a quest to save three tiny children from a villainous Parisian butcher. Alongside a Christmas ghost story, Matthew Bellwood’s telling of this grisly and bizarre tale promises to be as engaging as his audiences at Opera North and the Edinburgh Festival have come to expect.
Plus Nativity by Rachel Dean and Christmas treats including carols from the Leeds Women’s Institute choir.
