Crown Ballet

The Nutcracker – An eternal seasonal favourite.
Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky

Crown Ballet comes to the UK to enchant you with the delightful production of The Nutcracker. After a very long break we are proud to present to you the UK Premier of this ballet company from Moldova. The Nutcracker - a charming and kindly fairy tale is one of the jewels of Tchaikovsky's repertoire.

Prepare to enter a magical new world – the nutcracker in this ballet may be a handsome prince in disguise.

The original Christmas story is based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E.T.A. Hoffmann. It tells the story of Marie, a sad little girl, whose godfather, Drosselmeier, gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve. In her lively imagination it turns into a prince and the magic starts…

The ballet is the ultimate fairy-tale where goodness and beauty triumph.

This eternal seasonal favourite will be an unforgettable journey in the run-up to Christmas and an ideal introduction to audiences of any age to the magic that is classical ballet.

A wonderful treat full of glitter for the whole family!

A statement from the producers:

Dear Ballet lovers,
Due to the current political situation, we made the decision to replace the planned ballet company “Russian National Ballet” with a ballet company from Moldova. All tickets will be transferred to this new ballet performance, Crown Ballet. I can assure you that we have found a great replacement so that we can maintain our high quality. If you do not feel comfortable with the new ballet, the theatre will be happy to refund your already purchased tickets. I very much look forward, after such a long break, to be able to bring you this first time in the UK Classical Ballet to your local theatres. See you again soon in Autumn 2022!

Yours sincerely
Kind regards
Alexej Ignatow
