Brindley Events News

After the sell-out performances last year, Russian National Ballet returns to the Brindley Theatre, Runcorn on Sunday 20 October.

It hopes to enchant you with the delightful production of The Nutcracker – a charming and kindly fairy tale. It is one of the jewels of Tchaikovsky’s repertoire and an eternal seasonal favourite.

The original Christmas story is based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E.T.A. Hoffmann.Β 

It tells the story of Marie, a sad little girl, whose godfather, Drosselmeier, gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve. In her lively imagination it turns into a prince and the magic starts…

This will be an unforgettable journey in the run-up to Christmas and an ideal introduction to audiences of any age to the magic that is classical ballet.Β  A wonderful treat full of glitter for the whole family!
