Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back with the vibrant, breath-taking and enchanting ballet production, which will be a feast for the eyes and will delight the whole family. The Nutcracker is an eternal seasonal favourite directed and choreographed by the former Bolshoi Ballet Soloist, Konstantin Uralsky.

The Christmas story is based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E.T.A. Hoffmann. It tells the story of Marie, a melancholy little girl, whose godfather Drosselmeyer gives her a nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve. But the simple wooden nutcracker turns into a prince and the magic starts. 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.

‘Visually it was stunning and a feast for the eyes. Thoroughly enjoyable.’ **** Michael Hasted – Stage Talk Magazine
