The Nutcracker - an eternal seasonal favourite

presented by the Russian State Ballet

Friday 10th November at 7pm

 Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky


Russian National Ballet is coming to the UK for the very first time to delight you with beautiful new production of Nutcracker Ballet.


A nutcracker who may just be a handsome prince in disguise – prepare to enter a magical new world.


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…


This is the ultimate and beautiful fairy-tale where goodness and beauty triumph.


Set designer Lubov Sidelnikova says - ‘The Nutcracker - a delightful and kind fairy tale with a gemstone of Tchaikovsky's music. Therefore, I wanted to embed the set design of the Ballet as perfect dream of a flawless world where everyone is happy, and good always triumphs over evil. People are always trying to beautify their life and through beauty we try to create harmony and joy. In the set design of The Nutcracker I tried to create a sense of lightness and convey a celebration mood.’


Wonderful treat full of glitter for the whole family!
