Timeless ballet The Nutcracker kicks off 2020 for Sheffield theatre

A TIMELESS fairytale adventure packed with style, grace and stunning footwork makes a return to South Yorkshire this week.

The Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet is brining The Nutcracker to the stage of the Lyceum in Sheffield from tomorrow until Saturday.

This festive tale tells the story of Clara’s magical adventure with her Nutcracker Prince as she gets whisked away on a journey which includes the delicious Land of Sweets and the delightful Sugar Plum Fairy. 

The classic ballet boasts stunning baroque designs and is set to Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s original, much-loved score.

St Petersburg Classic Ballet is helmed by Marina Medvetskaya and combines classical training and technique with the best-loved Russian ballets.

Its performances have an air of magic, complemented by a full orchestra and outstanding soloists.

Tickets are available from the Sheffield Theatres’ Box Office in-person, by phone on 0114 249 6000 or online at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk.
