Nothing conjures up the magic of Christmas more than a festive ballet performed by dancers straight from the snowy, historic homeland of classical ballet, Russia. And the Corn Exchange is delighted to be welcoming some of the country’s wonderful dancers, when the renowned Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet company arrives in Cambridge at Christmas time for four days, to take audiences on a spellbinding storytelling dance journey.With Tchaikovsky’s beautiful and instantly recognisable music performed by a live orchestra and some of the best-loved dances like The Black Swan Pas de Deux, The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and The Waltz of The Flowers brought to life under the artistic direction of Marina Medvetskaya, Swan Lake and The Nutcracker promise to be truly memorable festive treats. This acclaimed company combines classical training and technique with the best-loved Russian ballets, accompanied by a full orchestra, to entertain audiences in breathtaking style.

Music: Pyotr Tchaikovsky

This spectacular new version of The Nutcracker, with stunning baroque designs, is a delightfully festive tale and the perfect treat for the whole family. The timeless story of Clara, who is whisked away on a magical adventure by her Nutcracker Prince, is set to Tchaikovsky’s instantly recognisable score.

This exquisite performance, delivered in traditional Russian style, was mesmerising… an awesome stage setting and perfect orchestral pitch that washed dream-like across the story
