The Nutcracker 2022

The Nutcracker is a ballet extravaganza that theatre-goers from around the world have long since associated with the magic of Christmas and the winter holidays. It is a time-honoured tradition for the Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre to ring in the festive season with this beloved show, where Christmas miracles come to life. To witness the troupe's masterful rendition of the legendary ballet, set to music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, come to the main venue of the Alexandrinsky Theatre on 1 and 2 January, the main venue of the Mariinsky Theatre on 3 January, the Hermitage Theatre on 5 January, or the new venue of the Mariinsky Theatre on 7 and 10 January. Let the new year start with a fairy-tale!
