3rd December - The Nutcracker

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a trip to your local theatre for a dazzling production of the most famous Ballet in the world – Nutcracker.

Traditionally, Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for their annual UK tour with the vibrant, and enchanting full touring ballet production.

The Nutcracker is an eternal seasonal favourite directed and choreographed by the former award winning Bolshoi Ballet Soloist, Konstantin Uralsky.

Snow flurries, sweets, princes, magic and love are just some of the elements that will be brought together by this renowned Russian company. A highly accessible ballet, full of familiar music such as the ‘Waltz of the Flowers’ and the ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’.

The Nutcracker continues to capture the hearts and imagination of different generations from all over the world. It is a truly captivating piece of theatre, a wonderful introduction to ballet for anyone who has never experienced it and retains its appeal for anyone who is familiar with it.

Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.

4th December - Don Quixote

After sell-out performances last year, the Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for its annual UK tour with spellbinding, lavish, full-production touring ballet.

Don Quixote delights in stories of brave knights, fabulous giants and other fantastical creatures.

But most of all, he dreams of his beloved Dulcinea, a woman that he believes to be so lovely and noble that she must be divine. His dreams are of their romantic adventures.

As he approaches the windmills, he can no longer see the moon and thinks that evil magicians have hidden his beloved mistress. So, spear in hand, he tilts at the sails of the windmill, which he mistakes for a giant!

Don Quixote has all the elements of the great classical ballets: emotion, drama and unforgettable characters.

Love, duels and spectacular choreography are mixed with a dash of Spanish passion in this most beautiful and moving ballet.

Fantastic evening out full of joy. Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.
