Something to warm your chestnuts – St Petersburg ballet glides into Eastbourne this month
The last time I saw this classy outfit was in Cusco, Peru back in 2005 and the only similarity with Eastbourne I can muster is the barely-positive temperature outside.
A pre-Christmas cracker indeed – as the St Petersburg ballet perform a collection of classics on consecutive evenings from Tuesday 15th December, including Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Nutcracker and a new production of Giselle, all at the Congress Theatre.
It isn’t everyday you get the chance to see the likes of prima ballerina Irina Kolesnikova, who was nominated Best Female Dancer in the National Dance Awards in the year I saw her, so I suggest you grab yourself a ticket while they’re still available, sit back and enjoy.
