Sleeping Beauty: Russian State Ballet of Siberia
Raymond Gubbay LTD presents
Russia’s acclaimed ballet company returns for the UK Tour 2020
Accompanied live, by The Russian State Ballet Orchestra
Tuesday 21 January, 7.30pm
The greatest romantic ballet of all time is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score. From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. From Odile, the temptress in black tulle as she seduces the Prince by spinning with captivating precision to the spellbound purity of the swan queen, Odette as she flutters with emotional intensity, the dual role of Odette/Odile is one of ballet’s most unmissable technical challenges.
The critics said…‘The production is a triumph’
Wednesday 22 January, 7.30pm
Every child’s favourite fairy tale, this is the classic story of love and innocence, mystery and magic set to Tchaikovsky’s sublime score. Stunning choreography, sumptuous costumes and wonderful sets form the fantasy world in which the Lilac Fairy struggles against the evil Carabosse.
The critics said… ‘Every child’s vision of a fairy tale brought to life’ South Wales Echo
