The Nutcracker | Swan Lake | Bord Gais Energy Theatre
Never fear those of you who missed THE NUTCRACKER and SWAN LAKE the last time they performed in Dublin as they both return to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre this December. Hurray!
Now, we'd like to say something along the lines of 'what a nice Christmas present that would make for those nearest and dearest to you', however, we fear the grinches among you might get a bit upset. Don't worry, I won't be attaching a video of Slade's 'Merry Christmas Everybody' along with this post.
Rather, let's accept the fact that - look out your window - winter is pretty much already upon us (or, it never left us) and look towards these two world class ballets as an event to warm the cockles of your heart on a cold winter's evening, marking the beginning of an exciting festive season.
International reviews are equally as enthusiastic and we at entertainment.ie loved Swan Lake. Having seen The Russian State Ballet version of Swan Lake earlier this year, we were positively blown away. You can read our account of the evening here. This time however, The Swan Lake will be presented to you in a spectacular interpretation by The Tchaikovsky Perm State Ballet together with their delightful version of the Christmas classic, The Nutcracker.
This company is internationally renowned as one of the greatest ballet companies in the world, let alone Russia. Having toured the world extensively, giving breathtaking performances from New York to the Netherlands, it has won 'The Golden Mask' award, which is Russia's most coveted cultural accolade, on numerous occassions.
Swan Lake will take to the stage on the 7th and 8th of December 2012 while The Nutcracker runs on the 5th, 6th and 9th of December.
Tickets available now from ticketmaster.ie
