Chichester Festival Theatre
TO SEE in the new year the Chichester Festival Theatre is excited to present two stunning Tchaikovsky ballet productions.
The Moscow City Ballet is returning to the city with Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty, each presented in classic Russian style and accompanied by a full orchestra.
Swan Lake is known as one of the world’s most romantic ballet, a tragic tale of love and betrayal set to Tchaikovsky’s beautiful, haunting score.
This is a signature piece of the company’s entire repertoire. Witness the heartbreaking tale of Siegfried and his love for Odette, the Queen of the Swans, as it is brought to life in its original splendour.
The enchanting and romantic story of The Sleeping Beauty inspired Tchaikovsky to write some of his most glorious music, and the ballet has captivated audiences for well over a century.
Featuring the delicate Princess Aurora, her gallant Prince, wicked Carabosse, the beautiful Lilac Fairy and a host of fairy-tale characters, this truly magical production showcases the company’s exquisite dramatic and lyrical talents.
This is a must see for any lover of dance and the beautiful music of one of Russia’s greatest Romantic composers.
Tickets for each show range from £15-£34.
