19th December - 31st December
What better way is there to get in the Christmas spirit than to enjoy a world class ballet with your loved ones at St David’s Hall?
This breathtaking season from the Russian State Ballet & Orchestra of Siberia starts with Cinderella (19-20 December).
The world’s favourite rags to riches fairytale is an enchanting mix of Prokofiev’s energetic score, lively choreography and colourful costumes. Will Cinderella’s dreams come true?
Then get ready to be swept off to a mysterious place where nothing is quite as it seems in The Nutcracker (21-24 December). Watch with astonishment as toys spring to life, and the treacherous Mouse King battles the handsome Nutcracker Prince.
The series climaxes with the greatest romantic ballet of all time, Swan Lake (27-31 December), 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. And for the first time ever at St David’s Hall, this year’s ballet season features a sprinkling of special effects with an atmospheric and ever-changing digital backdrop to make everything even more magical!
