Having wowed audiences across the UK since 2016, Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet returns to Lighthouse this new year with two spectacular productions: Adolphe Adams’ heart-breaking Giselle, and 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. 


Music: Pyotr Tchaikovsky 

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.
