After its successful performance in 2011, Russian Ballet is back this autumn with a ballet suitable for the whole family.
Join us for an unforgettable journey in the run-up to Christmas and be part of the magic as it unfolds.
The Christmas story is based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by ETA Hoffmann. It tells the story of Marie, a rather sad little girl, whose godfather, Drosselmeier, gives her a nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve which turns into a prince, and the magic starts…
Featuring the great music of Tchaikovsky including The Spanish Dance, The Arabian Dance, The Russian Dance, The Chinese Dance, The Waltz of the Flowers and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
The Nutcracker is considered by many to be one of the greatest classical ballets of all time!
At the Exmouth Pavilion on Thursday, November 7, tickets £20.
