From the cradle of classical ballet, Moscow City Ballet celebrates the Russian tradition in spectacular style with its Tchaikovsky Trilogy. Tchaikovsky is the undisputed Tsar of ballet; his sweeping scores have the power to transport audiences from delight to despair, each composition a masterpiece perfectly complementing the dancers and narrative, especially when performed by a full orchestra. The original Petipa – Ivanov choreography incorporates the distinctive composition of the late Victor Smirnov-Golovanov, a precious legacy upheld by the new generation of principal dancers, adding a youthful exuberance to these renowned ballets. The tragedy of Swan Lake, The Nutcracker’s festive adventure and the 100 year curse of The Sleeping Beauty are brought to life in exquisite performances by Moscow City Ballet, an unmissable treat this February.

Opera’s great, independent, sexual woman, the gypsy Carmen. Her friends and enemies from a cigarette factory. Her lovers, high and low. A naive corporal and the good girl from home. A handsome bullfighter. Smugglers. Jealousy, and a fatal struggle. Carmen, the most popular French opera, with some of the most alluring arias ever, has it all. An upright soldier. On duty far from home. The femme fatale from the wrong side of the tracks. Love at first sight. A walk on the wild side. Criminality, a handsome rival,  and a breaking point that leads to tragedy in the scorching Spanish sun. The colourful arias and choruses of Bizet’s Carmen tell it all with irresistible, unforgettable musical panache.
