The highly acclaimed Russian State Ballet return to the Belgrade with three fantastic ballets accompanied by a live, 30 piece orchestra.

On Thursday 14 November we’ll be presenting one of the most popular ballet’s of all time, The Nutcracker. Snow flurries, sweets, princes, magic and love are just some of the elements that will be brought together by this renowned Russian company. A highly accessible ballet, full of familiar music such as the Waltz of the Flowers and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

On Friday 15 November Don Quixote will take to the Main Stage. This stunning performance has all the elements of the great classical ballets: emotion, drama and unforgettable characters. Love, duels and spectacular choreography are mixed with a dash of Spanish passion in this most beautiful and moving ballet.

On Saturday 16 November, our Main Stage hosts Swan Lake – a timeless ballet with exquisite dancing. One hundred and thirty-five years ago audiences heard Swan Lake by the great Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky for the very first time. From that moment on, the world of ballet would never be the same.
