Christmas is right around the corner, and what better way is there to celebrate the start of the festive season, than immersing yourself in the wonderful world of ballet?

Raymond Gubbay's seasonal Christmas performances are coming to St. David's Hall this December, and now is your last chance to book tickets before they sell out.

The Russian State Ballet and Orchestra of Siberia will be performing four mesmerising ballet shows: a childhood favourite, Cinderella; Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet; a Christmas classic, The Nutcracker and of course the beautiful, Swan Lake.

The family-friendly ballet shows will take place across a two-week period, starting from Saturday, December 18, 2021. Tickets are selling out fast though, so book yours now to ensure you get the best seat in the house.

Critics have already acclaimed many of the performances as "a triumph", with "colourful costumes" and "highly-skilled musicians."

Formed in 1981, the Russian State Ballet of Siberia has quickly established itself as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and unusual depth.

With less than three weeks until the stunning performances begin at St. David’s Hall Cardiff, now is the time to book tickets to see your favourite ballet shows live on stage.
