Three sensational ballets for St David's Hall's festive season; ADVERTISEMENT FEATURE.

WHAT better way is there to get in the Christmas spirit than to enjoy a world class ballet with your loved ones at St David's Hall? We've got the festive season all tied up, with three magical ballets from one of the world's leading ballet companies, the Russian State Ballet and Orchestra of Siberia - the perfect Christmas present!

Our series of captivating ballets begins with the sensational UK premiere of The Snow Maiden (Saturday, December 19, to Monday, December 21), which revolves around a beautiful girl who dances too far outside the Land of Frost and into the human world.

But away from her familiar surroundings, will she find happiness in this tale of love, temptation and betrayal? Feel the warmth of the open fire as presents lay beneath the tree before drifting away to the Land of Snow when midnight strikes, where nothing is really as it seems in The Nutcracker (Tuesday, December 22, to Monday, December 28). Watch with astonishment as toys spring to life, and the treacherous Mouse King battles the handsome Nutcracker Prince. Guaranteed fun for the whole family.

The series climaxes with the greatest romantic ballet of all time, Swan Lake (Tuesday, December 29, to Sunday, January 3), which features Tchaikovsky's haunting score.

From the majesty of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all.
