The world renowned Russian State Ballet and Opera House is coming to County Durham to perform some of the world’s greatest, and best loved, ballets. Touring the UK from mid-October to end of November 2015, the Russian ballet and opera company will be performing three ballets – The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Don Quixote, with each ballet being directed and choreographed by former Bolshoi Theatre Ballet Dancer, Konstantin Uralsky.
Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.
The ballet performance in County Durham will be:
Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker – an eternal favourite
A nutcracker doll which turns into a prince…
A highly accessible ballet, full of familiar music such as The Waltz of the Flowers and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Producer Alexej Ignatow, of Amande Concerts Ltd, who has co-ordinated the UK tour, said: “It’s fantastic to bring such a talented and inspiring Russian opera and ballet company to the UK to offer local audiences the opportunity to experience world class ballet performances. We want to make ballet much more accessible and with such a renowned Bolshoi star as Konstantin Uralsky, as director, audiences know that these performances promise to be both stunning and magical.”
The Russian State Ballet & Opera House has been presenting ballets and operas to huge audiences, worldwide, for over 14 years. Amande Concerts Ltd will be bringing to the UK some 250 performers from the Company as part of their 2015 tours. Every year, Amande Concerts Ltd works with directors and leaders from established theatres in the Russian Federation who have graduated from the best artistic institutions in Russia and the former Soviet Union, to bring world class ballet and opera to the UK.
