November treats at Frome’s Memorial Theatre

IF you enjoy classic ballet there is a treat awaiting you at the Memorial this November.

The Nutcracker – Russian Ballet – will be performed by the State Ballet Academy of Minsk on Friday 8th November at 7.30pm.

This is a ballet classic for the whole family. Join the Memorial for an unforgettable journey in the run-up to Christmas and be part as the magic unfolds.

The premieres of The Nutcracker transforms the classical ballet into a fairy-tale. Featuring timeless score from incredible composer Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky, Nutcracker is a certified Russian classic, replete with evocative music and beautiful dance. This ballet has captured the imagination of many generations over the years and continues to attract audiences worldwide, full of mystery and romance.

The Christmas story is based on ‘The Nutcracker and the Mouse King’ written by E.T.A. Hoffmann. It tells the story of Marie, a rather sad little girl, whose godfather Drosselmeier gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve which turns into a prince and the magic starts…

The Nutcracker is considered by many to be one of the greatest classical ballets of all time!
