After a sell-out tour of Swan Lake last year, Russian National Ballet returns to the UK to enchant you with the delightful production of The Nutcracker; one of the jewels of Tchaikovsky's repertoire.
Prepare to enter a magical new world – the nutcracker in this ballet may be a handsome prince in disguise...
The original Christmas story is based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E.T.A. Hoffmann. It tells the story of Marie, a sad little girl, whose godfather, Drosselmeier, gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve. In her lively imagination it turns into a prince and the magic starts.
The ballet is the ultimate fairy-tale where goodness and beauty triumph.
This eternal seasonal favourite will be an unforgettable journey in the run-up to Christmas and an ideal introduction to audiences of any age to the magic that is classical ballet.
A wonderful treat full of glitter for the whole family!
