The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet came together in a special journey from a snowy Ukrainian picture-book village to the imperial splendour of the court of Catherine the Great.

Vakula, the son of the witch Solokha, attempts to woo and win the beautiful but fickle Oxana. It seems hopeless, but when the Devil, a witch, forest sprites and a host of colourful characters are involved, he could be lucky after all! Tchaikovsky’s music is packed with showpiece solos, dances and choruses: from grand polonaise to haunting chorus of water sprites to rustic revels – and there’s a true Russian flavour with Alexander Polianichko as conductor and several star Russian singers.
