GET into the Christ­mas spirit this year with the St Peters­burg Bal­let Theatre’s pro­duc­tion of The Nutcracker.

Based on Tchaikovsky’s 1895 bal­let, the show tells the clas­sic story of young Clara and her ad­ven­tures in a world where dreams be­come re­al­ity.

The com­pany will also present one of the world’s most well-known bal­lets, Swan Lake. For more de­tails: st-peters­burg-bal­let.com.
