After the sell-out performance of Swan Lake this year, Russian National Ballet returns to the UK to enchant you with the delightful production of The Nutcracker on the 1st October. The Nutcracker is a charming and kindly fairy tale is one of the jewels of Tchaikovsky’s repertoire. Prepare to enter a magical new world – the nutcracker in this ballet may be a handsome prince in disguise.
The original Christmas story tells of Marie, a sad little girl, whose godfather, Drosselmeier, gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve. In her lively imagination it turns into a prince and the magic starts.
The ballet is the ultimate fairy-tale where goodness and beauty triumph.This eternal seasonal favourite is an ideal introduction to audiences of any age to the magic that is classical ballet. For more information on the company visit www.russian-national-ballet.com.
A few days later at the Capitol sees MILOŠ: The Voice of the Guitar arrive on 5th October.
This concert is a journey through music and time. It uses the classical guitar and its unique voice as a vehicle, showcasing full range of colours and influences, through the works and musicians that defined it.
Familiar composers will reflect Miloš’s classical training at the Royal Academy of Music, whilst other pieces will showcase the link to his early training in Montenegro and his interest in the guitar as an instrument that is an intrinsic part of the Mediterranean environment he grew up in. In those early days, Andrés Segovia was a particular influence on Miloš and the latter part of the programme demonstrates his subsequent devotion to the music of Latin America. Concluding the programme, Miloš showcases his latest project with the music of the Beatles.
