Russian State Ballet to return to Tyne Theatre & Opera House in 2020

Russian State Ballet and Opera House will be returning to Tyne Theatre & Opera House on Friday 30th October 2020, on their traditional annual UK tour, with a lavish production of festive Ballet - The Nutcracker.

Following previous hugely popular shows at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House, including Swan Lake in November 2019, The Russian State Ballet and Opera House are sure to deliver a vibrant and enchanting show.

The Nutcracker is an eternal seasonal favourite directed and choreographed by the former award-winning Bolshoi Ballet Soloist, Konstantin Uralsky.

Their dazzling production of the most famous Ballet in the world, with music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky, will also feature a live orchestra of over 30 musicians.

Snow flurries, sweets, princes, magic and love are just some of the elements that will be brought together by this renowned Russian company. A highly accessible ballet, full of familiar music such as the ‘Waltz of the Flowers’ and the ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’.

The Nutcracker continues to capture the hearts and imagination of different generations from all over the world. It is a truly captivating piece of theatre, a wonderful introduction to ballet for anyone who has never experienced it and retains its appeal for anyone who is familiar with it.

Theatre Director Joanne Johnson said “We’re looking forward to welcoming Russian State Ballet & Opera House back to our stage in October with The Nutcracker. Their annual touring ballet is one of our best-selling shows and we find that audiences return every year to see their magnificent productions
