The Nutcracker Comes to Scarborough Spa with The Russian State Ballet and Opera House

The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker, one of the world’s best loved classical ballets is set to be performed at Scarborough Spa this November.

The popular Christmas story comes to The Grand Hall on Thursday 26th November, a perfect time to get into that festive spirit! The Russian State Ballet and Opera House will bring a new and vibrant production from the rich culture of Astrakhan.

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 Drosselmeyer gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve which turns into a prince and the magic begins …

The Nutcracker became one of Tchaikovsky’s most famous compositions, and perhaps the most popular ballet in the world. It is an enchanting feast for the eyes.

There is no score more successful in supporting the full range of ballet than those by Tchaikovsky. The romance and verve with which Tchaikovsky infused classical dancing makes his scores unsurpassed to this day.

The impressive cast will be joined with a large live orchestra featuring over 30 musicians. It is an opportunity for ballet lovers to see The Nutcracker performed by an established and long standing Russian theatre and be transported into another world of magic and live music.

Tickets for ‘The Nutcracker: The Russian State Ballet and Opera House’ are now on sale and available from The Spa’s Box Office (01723) 821888 and via
