Fri 23 Jan 2015
Formed in 1981 and based in Krasnoyarsk, in central Siberia, Russia State Ballet is one the leading companies known for its expanding bag of new works and classics, this year they will bring Coppélia, La Fille mat gardée, The Nutcracker and Swan Lake to Belfast.
This most famous of fantasy ballets for all the family begins as night falls on Christmas Eve. 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 mouse-army battle with the Nutcracker Prince and we travel through the Land of Snow to an enchanted
place where the magic really begins...
