Moscow City Ballet comes to the Kings with a double-bill of ballet.

Giselle (Tuesday 26) is the quintessential romantic ballet, a story of unrequited love set to a beautifully tragic score by Adolphe Adam. A peasant girl discovers the real identity of her true love with devastating consequences, in a tale of betrayal, supernatural spirits and a love that transcends death.

A perennial seasonal favourite, The Nutcracker (Wednesday 27 – Thursday 28) is complete with stunning costumes, sumptuous sets and Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece score.

Founder Smirnov-Golovanov’s original interpretation of The Nutcracker has an innovative freshness and the orchestra, choreography and outstanding virtuoso performances win rapturous audience response and repeatedly rave reviews.

This enchanting ballet tells the story of Clara’s magical adventure with her Nutcracker Prince and is an unmissable festive treat for all the family.

Joining the cast of The Nutcracker in Southsea, will be dancers aged between 11-17 years from Chichester based dance school Ruth Stein School of Dance.

Tickets: £31.50, call (023) 9282 8282 to book or visit kingsportsmouth.co.uk.
