Traditionally, Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for their annual UK tour with the vibrant, and enchanting full touring ballet production.

The Nutcracker is an eternal seasonal favourite directed and choreographed by the former award winning Bolshoi Ballet Soloist, Konstantin Uralsky.

Snow flurries, sweets, princes, magic and love are just some of the elements that will be brought together by this renowned Russian company. A highly accessible ballet, full of familiar music such as the Waltz of the Flowers and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
