17th century Paris. The mood is tense as d’Artagnan and the three musketeers embark on an action-packed quest to save the Queen’s reputation and the life of d’Artagnan’s love.

See the tale unfold in a whirlwind of adventure, romance and intrigue, accompanied by Sir Malcolm Arnold’s sweeping score played live.

A rip-roaring ballet with a classic love story at its heart, David Nixon’s The Three Musketeers is bound to leave a smile on your face.
