SAINT PETERSBURG CLASSIC BALLET – THE NUTCRACKER
January 26, 2017 - January 28, 2017
Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet, under the direction of Marina Medvetskaya, has won plaudits across the world.Demonstrating the superb technique and artistic heritage from the cradle of Russian ballet – the City of St Petersburg – and presenting the best-loved Russian ballet titles, Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet’s performances have an air of magic, complemented by a full orchestra and outstanding soloists who will take your breath away!
Natalia Romanova, who will be the soloist in both ballets, studied under the legendary ballerina Natalya Dudinskaya. In 1998 she joined the Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet from The Maly, and has danced principal roles with the company all over the world. Her partner on this tour will be Petr Borchenko, a Laureate of the International Ballet Competition (Varna) whose previous winners include Mikhail Barishnikov and Sylvie Guillem.
The Nutcracker is a delightfully festive tale, and the perfect introduction to Russian classical ballet. This brand new version of the timeless story of Clara, who is whisked away on a fairy tale adventure by her Nutcracker Prince, is set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score.
