The Russian State Ballet and Opera House presents The Nutcracker
Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky

After sold-out premieres of Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Romeo & Juliet last year, The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is bringing a new and vibrant production from the rich culture of Astrakhan.

The Nutcracker became one of Tchaikovsky’s most famous compositions and perhaps the most popular ballet in the world. It is an enchanting feast for the eyes.

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 rather sad little girl, whose godfather Drosselmeyer gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve which turns into a prince. And so the magic begins…

The Nutcracker showcases all the best-loved elements of the score, such as The Waltz of the Flowers and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. The Russian State Ballet and Opera House has ensured that this classical ballet remains just as spell-binding today as it was when it was performed 120 years ago.

This eternal seasonal favourite will be an unforgettable journey during the run-up to Christmas and an ideal introduction to people of any age to the magic that is classical ballet. It is an opportunity for ballet lovers to see The Nutcracker performed by an established and long standing Russian theatre, and be transported into another world of magic.
