Three captivating ballets will be performed by The Russian State Ballet Of Siberia at the Bristol Hippodrome in January.

The dancers will be accompanied by the talented Orchestra Of Siberia in The Nutcracker, Cinderella and Swan Lake.

The Siberian ballet troupe has established itself as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and is renowned for delivering oustanding performances.

Audiences will be mesmerised by the spectacular dancers and beautiful costumes as the dramatic storylines unfold before their eyes.

The company comprises more than 40 dancers and 30 musicians and the performances will be complemented by magical special effects and imaginative staging.

Artistic director Sergei Bobrov said: “It is always a pleasure to bring the unique traditions of Russian ballet to British audiences.

“Touring across the UK with a full company of dancers as well as highly-skilled musicians is always exciting, for me, it is very special to have the power of a symphony orchestra bringing the choreography to life on stage.”

Bristol theatre-goers will be transported to the Land of Snow in The Nutcracker on January 15.

This family favourite begins as night falls on Christmas eve and when midnight strikes, toy dolls come alive and the Mouse King and his army battle with the Nutcracker Prince.

Fairytale favourite Cinderella will delight ballet buffs when performers take to the stage for the rags-to-riches tale on January 16.

While her wicked stepmum and her ill-mannered daughters prepare for the Royal Ball, graceful Cinderella can only dream of with dancing the dashing prince.

With a touch of magic, her fairy godmother’s helps her dreams come true. But will Cinderella somehow be reunited with her prince after she is forced to flee the ball at midnight?

The spell of ballets will be rounded off with two performances of the wondrous Swan Lake on January 17 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

The greatest romantic ballet of all time is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score.

Tickets for the shows are available from the box office on 0844 8713012 or online at
