Ballet Classics Return To St David's Hall For Christmas
A programme of world class ballet from the Russian State Ballet & Orchestra of Siberia is set to make a return for the festive season at Cardiff’s St David’s Hall.
The series starts in style with the exquisite, Snow Maiden (Weds 19 – Thurs 20 Dec) where a beautiful girl dances too far outside the Land of Frost and into the human world. Away from her familiar surroundings, will she find happiness in this tale of love, temptation and betrayal?
Then it’s time for the festive favourite, The Nutcracker (Fri 21 – Mon 24 Dec). Get ready to be swept off to a mysterious place where nothing is quite as it seems – watch with astonishment as toys spring to life, and the treacherous Mouse King battles the handsome Nutcracker Prince.
After Christmas it’s the greatest romantic ballet of all time, Swan Lake (Thurs 27 – Sat 29 Dec), which features Tchaikovsky’s haunting score. From the majesty of the palace ballroom to moonlit lakes, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all.
The season climaxes with the world’s favourite rags to riches fairytale, Cinderella (Sun 30 – Mon 31 Dec). This perfect production is a mesmerising mix of Prokofiev’s energetic score, lively choreography and colourful costumes. Will Cinderella’s dreams come true?
This year’s ballet season at St David’s Hall also features a sprinkling of special effects with an atmospheric and ever-changing digital backdrop to make everything even more magical!
