Competition: Win tickets to see Russian State Ballet’s Romeo and Juliet, Swan Lake or Nutcracker on tour

Romeo and Juliet
by -

Romeo and Juliet is an all-time favourite classic love story.

The ballet, based on Shakespeare’s play, is choreographed to one of Prokofiev’s most evocative scores. Its exquisite dance, spell-binding battles and escalating drama are set among stunning production designs.

With its instantly recognisable music and a timeless story of good versus evil, Swan Lake is the greatest of romantic ballets, featuring an evocative score from the prolific composer Tchaikovsky.

Swan Lake

Swan Lake is a Russian classic, replete with haunting music and exquisite dance. This ballet has captured the imagination of many generations. Its fairy-tale mystery and romance continues to fascinate audiences worldwide.

Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so closely one can easily be mistaken for the other.

It is the compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, is turned into a swan by an evil curse.

The premiere of The Nutcracker transformed classical ballet into a fairy-tale and became one of Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky’s most famous compositions, as well as one of the most popular ballets in the world.

Featuring a timeless score from this gifted composer, The Nutcracker is a renowned Russian classic presenting, as it does, evocative music and exquisite dance.
