"The Nutcracker"

The Russian State Ballet plans to stage three classic works, “Sleeping Beauty,” “The Nutcracker” and “Cinderella” during the National Day holiday in October.

The performances promise to showcase a visual feast of magic, marvelous melodies, lavish scenes and exquisite costumes.

“Sleeping Beauty” is a fantasy story surrounding the sleeping Princess Aurora, who is awoken one day by a heroic prince. 

More than 200 costumes will be featured in the show, which displays the majestic splendor of the royal palace.

“The Nutcracker,” based on E.T.A Hoffmann’s story, depicts a girl’s adventure in a magical kingdom, while “Cinderella” is a romantic tale between the young Ella and a charming prince who fall in love with each other at a royal ball.

The productions have been critically acclaimed on previous world tours and, under renowned ballet artist Gordeev Viacheslav, the shows promise to hit even greater heights. 

A 70 percent discount is offered to early birds who buy tickets ahead of August 15.
