Sunset Series: Nightingale

You know the legend, but how much do you really know about the lady behind the lamp?

  • Booking essential

Florence’s legendary life was marked by monumental achievements and extraordinary events. In a society bound by convention, Florence changed history.

Get to know Florence like never before as we take you on a journey from her childhood surrounded by family, to finding her profession as a nurse, to becoming the first woman in history to receive an order of Merit from King Edward. This is a woman whose story is worth telling!

Narrated extracts from Florence’s personal diaries bring her story to life through her own words, alongside a brand-new score, original choreography, beautiful set and costumes.

Performed by an accomplished cast of dancers and musicians, this high-quality, original ballet is guaranteed to be an inspiring and informative experience for adults and children alike.
