The Nutcracker –A timeless classic of festive season.
Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky
Featuring a live Orchestra with over 30 musicians

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

Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back with this 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 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.

Romeo & Juliet
Music by S. Prokofiev

Featuring a live Orchestra with over 30 musicians

By far the best company to bring Russian ballet to British audiences Stage Talk Magazine

Romeo and Juliet is the world’s best known love story. William Shakespeare’s story of Romeo and Juliet was one of the first works of literature to inspire ballet choreographers, so perfectly suited to dance are its drama, romance and tragedy.

Set to one of Prokofiev’s most evocative scores, this production is filled with beautiful dance, riveting battles and compelling drama, all amidst stunning production designs.

Two innocent youths meet by chance, relishing the discovery and passion of first love only to be shattered by tragic twists of fate and the destructive hatred of their feuding families.

Romeo and Juliet has become one of the most beloved ballets, capturing the imagination of many generations over the years. It continues to attract audiences worldwide, who love its mystery and romance.
