The highly-acclaimed Vienna Festival Ballet Company returns to the Corn Hall, Cirencester, on Sunday December 10th to perform one The Nutcracker.
This performance of one of ballet's true favourites prmises a great night of entertainment for all the family.
The company, founded by the vastly experienced Austrian dancer and artistic directorPeter Mallek, aims to provide young and talented dancers with the opportunity to perform the great classical ballets around the world.
In this most famous of all fairytale ballets, Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score perfectly captures the spirit of Christmas Eve. As night falls, we are transported to a fantasy world where toy dolls come to life, an army of soldiers do battle with a gang of mice and a Nutcracker is transformed into a handsome prince.
CDC Events Officer Rik Husdan said: “This is a wonderful performance for family audiences who will love the story, along with the colourful costumes, lively characters and the beautiful music.”
The Nutcracker is a lively ballet, infused with charm. It will, without doubt appeal to everyone who appreciates brilliant dance and incredible music.
