The Nutcracker twirls onto the Victoria Theatre stage

For one night only, The Russian State Ballet and Opera House are returning to the Victoria Theatre, Halifax.

They’re bringing their enchanting ballet production of The Nutcracker to the stage, directed and choreographed by former Bolshoi Ballet Soloist, Konstantin Uralsky. The impressive cast will be accompanied by a large live Orchestra made up of over 30 musicians.

The Nurcracker tells the story of a sad little girl who receives a nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve, who magically turns into a Prince. When midnight strikes her toys come alive… and adventure awaits!

Tchaikovsky’s score is well-known and an absolutely brilliant, rousing one. It’s sure to be a delight of a show.

Producer Alexej Ignatow, of Amande Concerts Ltd, who has co-ordinated the UK tour, said:  “We are constantly on the lookout for new challenges, to ensure that our opera and ballet audiences get a chance to experience a wide spectrum of various classic pieces. With extensive national tours that get our productions seen the length and breadth of the country, we are able to offer national audiences in various theatres an unforgettable experience at a fraction of the price of the major opera houses, all without sacrificing quality. So, continuing to work with theatres all over the UK it is very close to my heart. We aim to deliver top quality productions every year and make new converts wherever we go”.

Catch the show at Victoria Theatre on Tuesday 19th November.
