The International Classic Ballet Theatre

The Nutcracker

Fri 5 – Sun 7 Jan 2024

This new year, Lighthouse Poole welcomes the return of Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, spectacular productions of the world’s most popular ballets. Tchaikovsky’s instantly recognisable scores, performed by a live orchestra, complete this delightful experience.

The Nutcracker is a feast for the senses, a family favourite and the perfect introduction to classical ballet. The enchanting tale of Clara’s adventures with her Nutcracker Prince is full of magic and wonder for audiences of all ages.

The company will also perform Swan Lake.

The ballets are presented by The International Classic Ballet Theatre. This company of international dancers, represented by PACE Ballet USA, made its UK debut in 2022/23 to great acclaim. Each dancer is carefully selected for their grace, skill and athleticism, essential for the classical style of ballet presented.
