This January, the Churchill Theatre welcomes the return of Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, spectacular productions of arguably the world’s most popular ballets. A live orchestra performing Tchaikovsky’s instantly recognisable scores completes this magical experience.
Swan Lake is an audience favourite, the tragic tale of love that triumphs over evil. Prince Siegfried falls in love with Odette, Queen of the Swans, only to be tricked into betraying her with devastating consequences.
The Nutcracker is a feast for the senses; the enchanting tale of Clara’s adventures with her Nutcracker Prince is full of magic and wonder for audiences of all ages, making it the perfect introduction to classical ballet.
The ballet is 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.
