The company are presenting The Nutcracker at the Marina Theatre on Sunday and Monday nightly at 7.30pm.

Tchaikovsky’s rousing score, sumptuous sets and glorious costumes make for an unforgettable production featuring favourite characters such as the Mouse King, Nutcracker Prince and the doll as they bring to life Drosselmyer’s strange and magical world.

The set pieces in the World of Flowers allow all the soloists to show off their unsurpassable talents making this a pure visual feast for every audience.

On Tuesday at 2.30pm and 7.30pm a change of repertoire brings a sensational production of Swan Lake. Set to Tchaikovsky’s sublime score, coupled with the romance and tragedy of the story, Swan Lake is set to present the perfect backdrop for the artistry, grace and precision for which the company is justly renowned.

The original choreography of Petipa, Ivanov, Vaganova, Grigorovich and Ryzhenko, takes the breathtaking power of the dancers to its furthermost limits. Both productions are produced by the company’s artistic director, Victor Smirnov-Golovanov, and will be accompanied by the Moscow City Ballet Orchestra.
