About The Nutcracker

Russian National Ballet Presents

The Nutcracker – An eternal seasonal favourite.

Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky

After a hugely well received performance of Swan Lake last year, Russian National Ballet returns to Stirling to enchant you with the delightful production of The Nutcracker. The Nutcracker – a charming and kindly fairy tale is one of the jewels of Tchaikovsky’s repertoire.

Prepare to enter a magical new world – the nutcracker in this ballet may be a handsome prince in disguise.

The original Christmas story is based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E.T.A. Hoffmann. It tells the story of Marie, a sad little girl, whose godfather, Drosselmeier, gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve. In her lively imagination it turns into a prince and the magic starts…

The ballet is the ultimate fairy-tale where goodness and beauty triumph.

This eternal seasonal favourite will be an unforgettable journey in the run-up to Christmas and an ideal introduction to audiences of any age to the magic that is classical ballet.

A wonderful treat full of glitter for the whole family!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Nutcracker are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
