The Nutcracker –  8th to 10th November ’18

Cork City Ballet, in association with the Cork Opera House, presents The Nutcracker directed by Alan Foley, which will run at the Cork Opera House on 8th, 9th and 10th of November, for four performances only – including a matinee at 2.30 pm on Saturday 10th starring world-renowned prima ballerina Ekaterina Bortyakova from the Moscow State Ballet as the ‘Sugar Plum Fairy’.

For this festive production, Cork City Ballet will lead the audience on an enchanting journey through the Land of Snow to the magical Kingdom of the Sweets. Enhanced by magnificent costumes made at the Mariinsky (Kirov) Ballet in St. Petersburg together with the glorious music of Tchaikovsky, CCB’s Nutcracker promises to be a thrilling spectacle of sumptuous dance delights.

This production by Cork City Ballet with choreography by Yury Demakov from the Bolshoi Ballet will feature the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince (Russian ballet star Akzhol Mussakhanov), principals, soloists, and a full corps de ballet in this seasonal classic for the entire family.
