Raymond Gubbay presents VARNA INTERNATIONAL BALLET returns for a new season in 2025 brought to life by magical special effects Performed by Varna International Ballet Accompanied by a live orchestra Varna International Ballet Orchestra This most famous of fantasy ballets for all the family begins as night falls on Christmas Eve. As snowflakes fall outside, the warm glow of the open fire sends flickering shadows across the boughs of the Christmas tree and all the presents beneath. When midnight strikes, we are swept away to a fairy-tale world where nothing is quite as it seems, toy dolls spring to life, the Mouse-king and his mouse-army battle with the Nutcracker Prince and we travel through the Land of Snow to an enchanted place where the magic really begins... Varna International Ballet & Orchestra Founded in 1947, the critically acclaimed Varna International Ballet returns to the UK. Renowned for its award-winning soloists and magnificent corps de ballet, the company has been delighting audiences for decades at home and abroad with its performances of the highest quality. Daniela Dimova Artistic Director Peter Tuleshkov Music Director and Chief Conductor ‘We are thrilled to be bringing our highly talented company of dancers and musicians back to the UK.
