SIBERIAN BALLET SPECTACULAR!
The Russian State Ballet and Orchestra of Siberia and Raymond Gubbay return to Blackpool’s Grand Theatre in January with an outstanding balletic trio!
For the perfect Christmas treat you can see Coppelia, Nutcracker and Swan Lake all at the Grand Theatre from Friday 11- Sunday 13 January 2013.
The first of this balletic trio to take to The Grand’s stage on Friday 11 January is the stunning Coppelia. Every toy has a story, especially in this charming comedy of errors, a witty combination of antics and abracadabra set in a doll maker’s workshop. This light-hearted tale of mistaken identity and confused lovers follows mischievous Swanilda, her impetuous suitor Franz and the eccentric toymaker Dr.Coppelius as they are brought to life by sparkling choreography and the animated score of Delibes. Coppelia is perfect for first-time ballet goers, families and everyone in between.
On Saturday 12 January don’t miss the spell-binding Nutcracker.
This most famous of fantasy ballets for all the family begins as night falls on Christmas Eve. As snowflakes fall outside, the warm glow of the open fire sends flickering shadows across the boughs of the Christmas tree and all the presents beneath. When midnight strikes we are swept away to a fairytale world where nothing is quite as it seems, toy dolls spring to life, the Mouse-king and his mouse-army battle with the Nutcracker Prince and we travel through the Land of Snow to an enchanted place where the magic really begins… The final ballet in this triumphant trio is the greatest romantic ballet of all time Swan Lake on Sunday 13 January.
The greatest romantic ballet of all time is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score. From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. From Odile, the temptress in black tulle as she seduces the Prince by spinning with captivating precision to the spellbound purity of the swan queen, Odette as she flutters with emotional intensity, the duel role of Odette/Odile is one of ballet’s most unmissable technical challenges.
Formed in 1981, the Russian State Ballet of Siberia has quickly established itself as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and unusual depth. The soloists and corps de ballet are superb, and never fail to delight audiences with their breathtaking physical ability and dazzling costumes.
