Hello our dear readers,
We hope you are getting ready for a festive season full of snow, (maybe rain in England), mulled wine, presents, Christmas shopping, family time, and much more. Let’s not forget that attending the Nutcracker Ballet has been a tradition for many generations.
A nutcracker doll which turns into a prince…
Snow flurries, sweets, princes, magic, love, victories and defeats, and Tchaikovsky’s rousing score performed live by over 30 musicians, are just some of the ingredients that will be brought together by this renowned Russian company.
A highly accessible ballet, full of familiar music such as The Waltz of the flowers and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

As we only have 10 more performances before the Ballet cast of RSBOH will go back home to get ready for their own festive season in Russia, which starts later then in England.
Below are just a few paragraphs from our Reviewers from our Autumn Ballet Tour 2015:
‘The opening scene was particularly eye-catching, with its sugared almond colours and rich backdrops, and I loved the way the effect of the lake was achieved, with the swans intertwining in “waves” on the lake.’ – Nancy Hill
‘The whole company is to be congratulated for its versatility in performing both classical and robust character dances with vigour and enjoyment.’ – Margaret Willis, DanceTabs
‘Visually The Nutcracker was beautiful, all rich textures and sumptuous reds, greens and ultramarine blues. The second act ballroom scene was spectacular with the biggest chandelier you’ve ever seen. This ballet also gives incredible scope for costume design with all the different toy-based characters and this production did not disappoint. Visually it was stunning and a feast for the eyes.’ – Michael Hasted
