Rus­sian Na­tional Bal­let bring The Nut­cracker

Loughborough Echo - - THE GUIDE -

RUS­SIAN Na­tional Bal­let will be at Lough­bor­ough Town Hall this month with The Nut­cracker – the fes­tive fam­ily favourite.

The pro­duc­tion will be tak­ing to the stage on Oc­to­ber 15, at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

Fea­tur­ing a time­less score from in­cred­i­ble com­poser Py­otr I. Tchaikovsky, Nut­cracker is a cer­ti­fied clas­sic, re­plete with evoca­tive mu­sic and beau­ti­ful dance.

Set de­signer Lubov Sidel­nikova said: “The Nut­cracker - a de­light­ful and kind fairy tale with a gem­stone of Tchaikovsky’s mu­sic.

“There­fore, I wanted to em­bed the set de­sign of the bal­let as per­fect dream of a flaw­less world where ev­ery­one is happy, and good al­ways tri­umphs over evil.”

The Christ­mas story is based on ‘The Nut­cracker and the Mouse King’ writ­ten by E.T.A. Hoff­mann.

It tells the story of Marie, a rather sad lit­tle girl, whose godfather Drosselmeier gives her a Nut­cracker doll as a present on Christ­mas Eve which turns into a prince and the magic starts.

When mid­night strikes, the world turns all mag­i­cal in the win­try glitter of Christ­mas Eve and toys come alive.

Please note the per­for­mances will not be ac­com­pa­nied by a live orches­tra.
