1984 The Ballet preview article from Now Then Manchester magazine Issue 24, October 2015

The first of two articles I’ve written for Now Then Manchester magazine about Jonathan Watkins’s production for Northern Ballet of George Orwell’s 1984. I went to see this at Manchester’s Palace Theatre after seeing the company rehearsing in Leeds.

  1. When you refer to pop I hope you’re referring to Rick Wakeman’s album 1984. If you’ve not heard it start with the track Robot Man played loud!!


  2. I have indeed heard it – to be honest I wasn’t a fan. I wonder what David Bowie’s adaptation would have been like had Orwell’s estate let him have permission – there was a glimpse on ‘Diamond Dogs’.
