Bolshoi Ballet Soloist, Konstantin Uralsky, The Russian State Ballet and Opera House Bring Ballet to Sussex

Directed and choreographed by former Bolshoi Ballet Soloist Konstantin Uralsky, The Russian State Ballet and Opera House bring you the three most famous ballets of all time.

Swan Lake – a compelling legend of tragic romance

Swan Lake is arguably one of the most loved and challenging ballets, not least thanks to Tchaikovsky’s instantly recognisable and timeless score. From the impressive splendour of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, the perfect romantic ballet of all time. Swan Lake captures, like no other, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.

The Nutcracker – the beloved Christmas classic

The Nutcracker continues to capture the hearts and imagination of generations of theatre-goers. It is a truly captivating piece of theatre, a wonderful introduction to ballet for anyone who has never experienced it and still so special to anyone who has. Snow flurries, sweets, princes, magic, love, victories and defeats, and Tchaikovsky’s rousing score, are just some of the ingredients that will be brought together by this renowned Russian State Ballet.
This is the ultimate and beautiful fairy-tale where goodness and beauty triumph.

Sleeping Beauty – a spectacular fairy – tale

Every child’s favourite fairy-tale, Sleeping Beauty is the classic story of love and innocence, mystery and magic set to Tchaikovsky’s sublime score. Stunning choreography, sumptuous costumes and wonderful sets form the fantasy world in which the Lilac Fairy struggles against the evil Carabosse. Highlights include the Famous ‘Rose Adagio’ when Princess Aurora is introduced to four princes. This ravishing production of the Sleeping Beauty is certain to leave you refreshed, relaxed and alert. It shimmers like an exquisite dream.

The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is a gem for the Russian cultural traditions, bringing as they do the passion and vibrancy of Russian character to this well-known ballet. It has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality, and never fails to delight audiences.
