The Russian State Ballet & Opera House: The Nutcracker
On Friday 21st October, The King’s Theatre welcomes the Russian State Ballet performing The Nutcracker, accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.
The Russian State Ballet and Opera House will burst onto the stage again with a new and exciting performance of The Nutcracker, and will bring with them all the colour, enthusiasm and vibrancy that one would expect.
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 Drosselmeyer gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve which turns into a prince and the magic begins.
Featuring a timeless score from the incredible composer Pyotr. I. Tchaikovsky, The Nutcracker showcases all the best-loved elements that everyone listens to on radio or at home, such as The Spanish Dance, The Arabian Dance, The Russian Dance, The Chinese Dance, The Waltz of the Flowers and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Tickets for the show, which commences at 19:30pm range from: £21.50- £32.50 for the side stalls and upper circle and between £21.50-£34.50 for the centre stalls and dress circle.
