Russian State Ballet and Orchestra of Siberia - The Nutcracker
Fri 23 Jan
Fri 23 Jan 2015
This most famous of fantasy ballets begins as night falls on Christmas Eve. As snowflakes fall outside, the warm glow of the open fire sends flickering shadows across the boughs of the Christmas tree and all the presents beneath. When midnight strikes, a fairy-tale world unfolds where nothing is quite as it seems. Toy dolls spring to life, the Mouse King and his Mouse Army battle with the Nutcracker Prince and the audience is transported through the Land of Snow to an enchanted place where the magic really begins.
