Following its recent opening Storyhouse Chester has revealed the first shows in its Spring Season for 2018, with major names in opera, comedy and dance coming to the new venue.

The Saint Petersburgh Classic Ballet under the direction of Marina Medvetskaya will make its debut from 16 to 18 February with Giselle and Swan Lake. These two incredibly romantic ballets are sure to delight dance fans.

Two favourite comedians are bringing their solo shows to Storyhouse. TV favourite Sarah Millican brings her show Control Enthusiast, a frank, funny and unapologetically filthy look at the comedienne's need for control on Thursday 22 February 2018.

David Baddiel will bring his Olivier Award-nominated My Family: Not The Sitcom about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media and gay cats to Storyhouse direct from the West End.

Strictly Come Dancing‘s Brendan Cole and his guest dancers bringing his latest Latin and ballroom production, All Night Long to the venue on Saturday 17 March 2018.

On the 20th March 2018, English Touring Opera will bring Mozart's The Marriage Of Figaro with the following evening seeing two one-act opera Puccini operas Il Tabarro and Gianni Schicchi come to the venue.

Storyhouse Chief Executive Andrew Bentley commented: “The past few months have been incredible; we’ve had a great reception here in Chester and our programme is going from strength to strength. We can’t wait to enter our second year with a fantastic line up that I know audiences will love.”
