Performed by The Russian State Ballet of Siberia and accompanied by The Orchestra of the Russian State Ballet

Sergei Bobrov - Artistic Director

Anatoly Tchepurnoi - Music Director and Chief Conductor

The Russian State Ballet of Siberia has established itself as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and depth. The soloists and corps de ballet are exceptional, delighting audiences with their breath-taking physical ability and beautiful costumes as each storyline unfolds to the live accompaniment of the orchestra. The company comprises over 40 dancers and 30 musicians. For the 2018 season, the Company will merge traditional and digital worlds with an imaginative staging set against an ever-changing colourful backdrop with magical special effects.

Commenting on the production, Sergei Bobrov said, ‘It is always a pleasure to bring the unique traditions of Russian Ballet to British audiences. Touring across the UK with a full company of dancers as well as highly skilled musicians is always exciting, for me, it is very special to have the power of a symphony orchestra bringing the choreography to life on stage.’

Last season’s reviews:

 “neatly and zestily danced by a corps of 24” - Financial Times

“This was a faithful, gimmick-free traditional reading of one of the world’s most adored ballets with enough warmth to melt the coldest Siberian winter – 5 stars.” - Brighton Argus

“The Russian Ballet of Siberia skipped and tapped during Victorian parlour games and snowball fights timed to Tchaikovsky’s score, expertly rendered by the Russian State Ballet Orchestra.” - East Anglian Daily Times

Cinderella

The world’s favourite rags to riches fairy-tale where dreams can come true is a magical mix of Prokofiev’s energetic score, lively choreography and colourful costumes. Whilst her wicked stepmother and her ill-mannered daughters prepare for the Royal Ball, graceful Cinderella can only dream of dancing with the dashing Prince. Later that evening, her rags become a glittering gown and she is swept magically to the Ball. From that very moment the Prince is smitten, midnight strikes and one lost crystal slipper later, he must now embark on a journey to find his lost love

The Nutcracker

This most famous of fantasy ballets for all the family 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 we are swept away to a fairy-tale 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..

Swan Lake

The greatest romantic ballet of all time is 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 tutu 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
