The Russian State Ballet & Orchestra of Siberia performs 3 wonderful ballets:


20th – 24 December THE NUTCRACKER


This most famous of fantasy ballets for all the family begins as night falls on Christmas Eve. Snowflakes fall outside and the warm glow of firelight sends flickering shadows across the boughs of the Christmas tree and the presents beneath. When midnight strikes, we are swept away to a fairytale world where nothing is quite as it seems, toy dolls spring to life, the Mouse King and his army battle with the Nutcracker Prince and we travel through the Land of Snow to an enchanted place where the magic really begins...


27th – 29 December COPPÉLIA


Every toy has a story, especially in this charming comedy of errors, a witty combination of antics and abracadabra, set in a doll maker’s workshop. This light-hearted tale of mistaken identity and confused lovers follows mischievous Swanilda, her suitor Franz and the eccentric toymaker Dr.Coppelius are brought to life by sparkling choreography and the animated score of Delibes. Coppelia is perfect for first-time ballet goers, families and everyone in between.


30th December – 3 January SWAN LAKE


The greatest romantic ballet of all time brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score. From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. From Odile, the temptress in black tulle as she seduces the Prince by spinning with captivating precision to the spellbound purity of the swan queen, Odette as she flutters with emotional intensity, the dual role of Odette/Odile is one of ballet’s most unmissable technical challenges.
