Popular ballet is back in town

Updated: 9:04 am, May 07, 2015

A BREATH-TAKING live production of talented ballet will once again arrive in Evesham in the run up to Christmas.

The acclaimed Vienna Festival Ballet will return to the town to perform two shows at the Evesham Arts Centre on Friday and Saturday, December 19 and 20 – with shows starting at 7.30pm and a matinée performance on the Saturday at 2.30pm

Vienna Festival Ballet has been celebrating their 34th anniversary with a UK tour bringing one of the most famous Tchaikovsky great classics -The Nutcracker.

The enchanting tale of The Nutcracker is one of the best-loved ballets and centres around Clara and her nutcracker doll, which magically transforms into a princely soldier.

Their adventures see Clara and the Nutcracker doll combat the Mouse King, and join the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier on a wonderful journey through a shimmering winter land scene to a Kingdom made entirely of sweets.

Returning by popular demand, following several successful performances, including Sleeping Beauty earlier this year, Vienna Festival Ballet’s The Nutcracker promises to be a delightful treat for ballet fans and interested observers alike.

The performances also offer an ideal opportunity to introduce children to the art and skills of ballet.

Tickets are on sale now at £19 (£17 for pensioners, £13 children or £56 for a 2-adult and 2-child family group) and are

available by calling 01386 446944 or visiting
