Details

Charles Darnay, the son of a tyrannical French Marquis, leaves his country on the eve of the French Revolution to go to England where he meets and falls in love with Lucie Manette, the daughter of a doctor who was falsely imprisoned in the Bastille by Charles' own father. Charles bears an uncanny resemblance to a disillusioned and dissolute English banker, Sydney Carton, who is also in love with Lucie, though he realises that she would never marry a man like him. When the Revolution breaks, Darnay returns to France in order to rescue a former servant of his father's, but is himself caught up in the Terror. Lucie, her father and Carton come to Paris hoping to rescue Charles from the Revolutionary Courts. In a final act of redemptive self-sacrifice, Carton substitutes himself for Darnay in the condemned cell and goes to the guillotine on his behalf. A Tale of Two Cities is supported by ARts Council England through Grants for the ARts and by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. Northern Ballet - A Tale of Two Cities website.
