What's On

The Nutcracker ballet has become deeply engrained in global musical culture, as a precious jewel from the treasure trove of P.I. Tchaikovsky's heritage. Year after year, thousands of people who admire this composer's genius immerse themselves in the entrancing atmosphere of dreams and faerie adventures. The public will get to enjoy the classical masterpiece once again on 11 and 25 October at the Mariinsky Theatre.

On 13 December, the new venue of the Mariinsky Theatre will host a unique performance, showcasing carefully restored masterpieces of the genius choreographer, Leonid Yacobson.  The show celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first concert programme that the great ballet master designed for his troupe.

On 12 and 13 November, our theatre will travel to Manama, the capital of the Kingdom of Bahrain, for the first time. We will be touring with The Sleeping Beauty. We will present Marius Petipa's classical ballet, The Sleeping Beauty (with music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky), at the Bahrain National Theatre. The production has been staged by the distinguished French choreographer Jean-Guillaume Bart.

The Leonid Yacobson troupe is continuing its collaboration with the Mariinsky Theatre and will perform at its Primorsky Venue in Vladivostok during the Grand Tour.  On 26 and 27 November, the public will see Don Quixote: a unique and vibrant production. A roller-coaster of a plot and a cast of spitfire characters are brought to life by expressive choreography and lavish scenery.
