The Nutcracker: Russian State Ballet and Opera House
The Russian State Ballet and Opera House Presents The Nutcracker –A timeless classic of festive season.
Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky.
Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.
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.
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.
