The Nutcracker: Russian State Ballet and Opera House®
After last year's success, Russian State Ballet and Opera House are back with a ballet classic for the whole family. Join an unforgettable journey in the run-up to Christmas and be part of the magic unfolding.
The premieres of The Nutcracker transforms the classical ballet into a fairy-tale. Featuring timeless score from incredible composer Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky, Nutcracker is a certified Russian classic, replete with evocative music and beautiful dance. This ballet has captured the imagination of many generations over the years and continues to attract audiences worldwide, full of mystery and romance.
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 Drosselmeier gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve which turns into a prince and the magic starts…
The Nutcracker is considered by many to be one of the greatest classical ballets of all time!
Running time of the performance is approx 2 hours including 20 minute interval.
The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is renowned across Europe for their faithful, intimate and powerful performances. They have been featured regularly in local and national media, including an appearance on BBC Television's The One Show.
Alexej Ignatow, producer of The Russian State Ballet and Opera House explains what make his company so unique and stand out from the rest: 'The Russian State Ballet and Opera House was founded to represent quality and passion for Ballet and Opera at the highest level. Unlike many other companies that travel to Europe with ballet and opera productions, we only focus on working with established theatres in the Russian Federation. These theatres have many years of experience and, most importantly, they have an established spine of directors and leaders from Russia's most respected artistic institutions'.
The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is a gem of the Russian cultural tradition, bringing as they do the passion and vibrancy of the Russian character to their performances.
