Russian State Ballet of Siberia to perform Cinderella, Swan Lake and The Nutcracker at Nottingham Royal Concert Hall
The Russian State Ballet of Siberia is once again touring the UK with its classical repertoire, accompanied by the Russian State Ballet Orchestra.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the company’s first season in the UK, which is due to visit the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham from Monday to Wednesday.
It will present Cinderella, Swan Lake, and The Nutcracker.
The Russian State Ballet of Siberia— led by Artistic Director Sergei Bobrov, and Music Director Anatoly Tchepurnoi— 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.
Sergei Bobrov said: “I am delighted to return to the UK this year.
“The response of audiences wherever the company performs is overwhelming.”
“We can’t wait to be back on stage in front of UK audiences once again.”
Rags-to-riches fairytale Cinderella will be performed on Monday, at 7.30pm.
Swan Lake is on Tuesday at 7.30pm.
Described as the greatest romantic ballet of all time, it is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score.
There are two performances of The Nutcracker on Wednesday, at 2pm and 7.30pm.
Set at Christmas Eve, when midnight strikes toy dolls spring to life, the Mouse King and his mouse army battle with the Nutcracker Prince in the Land of Snow.
The Russian State Ballet of Siberia was formed in 1978 by talented graduates from choreographic schools in Moscow, St Petersburg, Kiev, Novosibirsk and Yekaterinburg.
