The acclaimed Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet bring their magical production of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker to the Lyceum Theatre from Tuesday 5 – Saturday 9 January as part of their first UK tour.
A delightfully festive tale, The Nutcracker is the perfect introduction to ballet. It’s Christmas Eve and Herr Stahlbaum and his wife have arranged a party. Their children, Clara and Fritz greet the guests, amongst them the mysterious Dr. Drosselmeyer who brings presents for the children, including a Nutcracker doll. When the party ends, the guests leave and Clara goes to bed. But after midnight, the Nutcracker comes to life and Clara’s fairytale adventure begins.
Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score including The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and The Waltz of the Flowers, played by a live orchestra, makes The Nutcracker an unmissable treat for all the family.
