CHOOSE FROM FOUR SHOWS FOR A VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT

When it comes to a Valentine’s gift, it’s public knowledge that diamonds are over-rated and restaurants too busy. Treat your loved one to an unforgettable evening by giving the gift of theatre this Valentine’s Day. We’ve chosen four shows that will make you fall in love with theatre.

AN EPIC LOVE STORY OF OUR TIME

Miss Saigon takes you to Vietnam, as 17-year-old Kim is forced to work in a notorious Saigon bar where she meets and falls in love with an American GI…but they are torn apart by the fall of Saigon. For 3 years Kim goes on an epic journey of survival to find her way back to Chris, who has no idea he's fathered a son.

A story of love, hope and loss that might make you shed a tear or two. The best thing about Miss Saigon? You can catch it on Valentine’s Day!

Miss Saigon is currently on at the Festival Theatre - must end 17 February! Tickets from £32

A SENSUAL NIGHT OF FLAMENCO-INSPIRED DANCING

Is there anything more romantic than a Spanish-inspired evening? Smugglers, soldiers, gypsies, bull fights and a love triangle – a different type of love story, perfect present for dance enthusiasts. The sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco.

Not passionate enough for you? The curtain-raiser Linea Recta will showcase an explosive language premised upon the theme of partnership and performed to flamenco guitar.

Carmen.maquia is gracing the Festival Theatre stage, 6 – 10 March. Tickets from £19

A MYSTICAL FAIRY-TALE OCCASION

Immerse yourself in a mystical underwater world and experience the fairy-tale love story between a young mermaid and a man. Northern Ballet’s The Little Mermaid take you on a journey beneath the waves, in a show full of striking sets and romantic dancing.

It’s the perfect Valentine’s gift for those who love ballet and have a soft spot for Disney’s version.

The Little Mermaid can be enjoyed at the Festival Theatre, 22 – 24 March. Tickets from £16

A COMPLICATED – YET COMICAL – LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP

A complicated and comical love-hate relationship made in musical form? This is the perfect show for those who don’t like typical romantic love stories. Kiss Me Kate revolves around the tempestuous love lives of actor-producer Fred Graham and his leading lady turned ex-wife,Lilli Vanessi.

Add to the mix another couple and some gangsters who somehow get caught up in the show and you have the perfect Valentine’s gift for the musical lover.
