CHRISTMAS is the most magical time of the year, so it’s fitting that the ultimate festive ballet

The Nutcracker is coming to St David’s Hall!

From the world-renowned Russian State Ballet & Orchestra of Siberia, this

spellbinding production is at the National Concert Hall of Wales for nine

sensational performances from

Thursday 22 December – Wednesday 28 December at 2pm and 5.30pm (excluding 25 & 26 December).

Feel the warmth of the open fire as presents lay beneath the tree before drifting

away when midnight strikes to the mysterious Land of Snow where nothing is

really as it seems. Watch with astonishment as toys spring to life before your

eyes, and the treacherous Mouse King battles the handsome Nutcracker Prince.

In 1891, Tchaikovsky originally based his iconic score on a creepy short story

by German author E.T.A Hoffman entitled The Nutcracker and The Mouse

King, before it evolved into the family fun as we know it now.

The Nutcracker is the perfect way to get in the festive spirit and is ideal for first-time ballet goers!
