Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky
Russian National Ballet is coming to the UK 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!

Calamity Jane dresses like a man, totes a gun and drives the Deadwood City stagecoach.
Well-meaning, but disaster-prone, she tries to help the local saloon proprietor out of a jam by promising to fetch a music-hall star from Chicago. But things don’t go too smoothly for Calamity, as everyone in town favours the new girl and she struggles to keep her jealousy and pride in check.
It takes her long standing enemy Wild Bill Hickock to make her see sense, and realise her Secret Love…
With an Oscar nominated score that includes The Black Hills of Dakota, The Deadwood Stage, Just Blew in from the Windy City and the Award winning Secret Love, don’t miss this new production which blows into your city for one week only.
