Behind the scenes at the ballet

Photographer Justin Slee goes backstage with the Leeds-based Northern Ballet company as the dancers prepare for their new production based on the life of Giacomo Casanova.

Casanova is known these days as the great seducer, but he was also a gambler, spy, diplomat, entrepreneur and author, and the production aims to highlight these lesser-known aspects of his life.
