Under the expert direction of Marina Medvetskaya, this acclaimed company combines classical training and technique with outstanding soloists to entertain audiences in breath-taking style. A full orchestra complements the purity of the dancing and traditional staging, to bring a taste of imperial Russia to the UK.

This spectacular new version of The Nutcracker, with stunning baroque designs, is a delightfully festive tale and the perfect treat for the whole family. The timeless story of Clara, who is whisked away on an enchanting adventure by her Nutcracker Prince, is the perfect introduction to Russian classical ballet. Full of magical effects, the ballet is set to the captivating and instantly recognisable Tchaikovsky score.
