Cardiff’s St David’s Hall has got the festive season all wrapped up with four enchanting productions performed by the prestigious Russian State Ballet of Siberia and accompanied by the Russian State Ballet Orchestra in partnership with Raymond Gubbay Ltd.
Cinderella’s Rags to Riches Tale
The Christmas ballet season is already underway and starts in style with the rags to riches fairy-tale, Cinderella (running Sat 18 Dec – Sun 19 Dec). The presentation combines a mesmerising mix of Prokofiev’s energetic score with lively choreography and colourful costumes.
Festive Favourite, The Nutcracker
The family festive favourite, The Nutcracker (Mon 20 – Fri 24 Dec) sweeps the family off to a mysterious place where nothing is quite as it seems. Watch with astonishment as toys spring to life, and the treacherous Mouse King battles the handsome Nutcracker Prince.
Romance at Swan Lake
After Christmas it’s the greatest romantic ballet of all time, Swan Lake (Mon 27 – Thurs 30 Dec), which features Tchaikovsky’s haunting score. From the majesty of the palace ballroom to moonlit lakes, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all.
Passion & Tragedy in Romeo & Juliet
The season comes to a breath-taking finale with another of Prokofiev’s spectacular scores in Shakespeare’s tale of primal passion and timeless tragedy, Romeo & Juliet (Fri 31 Dec & Sun 2 Jan). Experience the grandeur of the masked ball and the intimacy of the lovers’ balcony in this unmissable, star-crossed story of family feuds and doomed love set in bustling Renaissance Verona.
