Bolshoi Ballet - Win two tickets to a live screening of The Nutcracker!

As part of the 2018/19 Bolshoi Ballet in cinema season the company presents the quintessential Christmas ballet, The Nutcracker.

Competition Ends: 12/12/2018

A festive tradition for the whole family, the timeless Christmas classic The Nutcracker is broadcast live from the Bolshoi stage for two hours of enchantment and magic on 23 December 2018. This is Bolshoi Ballet’s first live broadcast of The Nutcracker since 2014.

It is Christmas Eve and the magician Drosselmeyer gives Marie a Nutcracker doll as a Christmas present. As night falls the Christmas tree begins to grow, mice appear and all is not as it seems. Marie’s Nutcracker doll magically transforms into a prince taking them both on a wonderful adventure. The Nutcracker leads the toy soldiers into battle and with Marie’s help slays the Mouse King, breaking the curse. Marie recognises the prince as Drosselmeyer’s nephew. Together they journey to the Land of Sweets and are greeted by the Sugar Plum Fairy. They regale their tale of the battle and there is a celebration.
 
This traditional story along with Tchaikovsky’s cherished score, Yuri Grigorovich’s choreography, the Bolshoi’s Principals, Soloists and the accomplished Bolshoi Corps de Ballet this promises to be the perfect pre-Christmas treat for the whole family.
 
The 2018/19 Bolshoi Ballet in cinema season showcases some of ballet’s greatest classical works performed by the world’s finest dancers creating a unique cinematic experience. Four classical ballets (La Sylphide, Don Quixote, La Bayadère and The Sleeping Beauty) will be shown on the big screen alongside the beloved Christmas tale The Nutcracker. The evocative 1920’s jazz ballet The Golden Age and Edward Clug’s latest choreographic work Petrushka alongside Carmen Suite completes the season.

Enter to win a pair of tickets to the live screening of the Bolshoi Ballet's The Nutcracker on 23 December at a cinema of your choice.
