    Join us for an unforgettable journey as Russian State Ballet and Opera House present Romeo & Juliet and The Nutcracker. Both ballets are accompanied by a live 30-piece orchestra.

    Romeo & Juliet is probably the worlds best-known love story. Shakespeares Romeo & Juliet was one of the first works of literature to inspire ballet choreographers, so perfectly suited to dance are its drama, romance and tragedy.

    The Nutcracker transforms the classical ballet into a fairy-tale with a timeless score from Tchaikovsky. The Nutcracker is a magnificent Russian classic, replete with evocative music and beautiful dance.
