After an incredible 2013 Spring Season where Grand Opera of Belarus made its debut in UK with Madam Butterfly Opera and La Boheme Opera.

We have been extremely busy this summer getting ready for our 2013 Autumn Season.

This year Russian State Ballet and Opera House will be performing The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Romeo and Juliet. Most of the performances will be performed to a Large Live Orchestra.

We have selected to work with the Russian State Opera and Ballet Theatre of Astrakhan this year. This is a new dynamic Theatre that has already won many awards and is considered to be one of the best in Russia.

The Nutcracker became one of Tchaikovsky’s most famous compositions, and perhaps the most popular ballet in the world.The Christmas story is based on “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” written by E.T.A. Hoffmann. It tells the story of Marie, a rather sad little girl, whose godfather Drosselmeyer gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve which turns into Prince, and the magic starts…

The Premiere of Swan Lake transforms the classical ballet into a Fairy Tale. With instantly recognisable music and a captivating story of good against evil, Swan Lake is the greatest of Romantic Ballets.

Featuring timeless score from the incredible composer Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky, Swan Lake is certified Russian Classic, replete with evocative music and beautiful dance. This Ballet has captured the imagination of many generations over the years and continues to attract audiences worldwide, full of mystery and romance.

Romeo and Juliet is probably the world’s best known love story. William Shakespeare’s story of Romeo and Juliet was one of the first works of literature to inspire Ballet choreographers- so perfectly suited to dance are its drama, romance and tragedy.Set to one of Prokofiev’s most evocative scores, this production is filled with beautiful dance, riveting battles, and compelling drama, all amidst stunning production designs.

Two innocent youths meet by dance, relishing the discovery and passion of first love – only to be shattered by tragic twists of fate and the destructive hatred of their own families.
