For the first time in 15 years the critically acclaimed St Petersburg Ballet Theatre returns to Melbourne with two magnificent Tchaikovsky ballets in one thrilling season. The immortal Swan Lake and the beloved Christmas special, The Nutcracker.
One of the most beloved ballets, Swan Lake is the classic love story between Prince Siegfried and the Swan Princess Odette divided by the villainous sorcerer Rothbart in a story where true love conquers all.
The full length production of The Nutcracker brings to life the magical tale of young Clara and her Nutcracker Prince and their fantastical adventures into a world where dreams come to life.
