The Nutcracker

Having wowed audiences across the UK since 2016, Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet makes its debut at the Orchard Theatre this new year with a spectacular production of Tchaikovsky’s perennial favourite, The Nutcracker. Under the expert direction of Marina Medvetskaya, this acclaimed company combines classical training and technique with outstanding soloists to entertain audiences in breath-taking style. A full orchestra complements the purity of the dancing and traditional staging, to bring a taste of imperial Russia to the UK.


This spectacular new version of The Nutcracker, with stunning baroque designs, is a delightfully festive tale and the perfect treat for the whole family. The timeless story of Clara, who is whisked away on an enchanting adventure by her Nutcracker Prince, is the perfect introduction to Russian classical ballet. Full of magical effects, the ballet is set to the captivating and instantly recognisable Tchaikovsky score.

“This exquisite performance, was mesmerising… an awesome stage setting and perfect orchestral pitch that washed dream-like across the story”
Sunday Business Post

“Beautiful, spectacular, enthralling; spellbinding, dynamic and witty…Crackin’ stuff indeed”
The Bath Magazine

“A treat for audiences well versed in classical ballet techniques and familiar with the story, but also accessible to young theatregoers or anyone who enjoys Tchaikovsky’s music. A thoroughly enjoyable Christmas treat.”
