MOSCOW City Ballet will present an enchanting triple-bill of the greatest ballets in the classical repertoire at the Theatre Royal Bath.

The three stunning ballet classics will include Romeo and Juliet, Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty.

The company, which will be joined by the Moscow City Ballet Orchestra, will make a welcome return to the theatre from Monday to March 17.

These big story ballets are the essence of Russian culture – composed, choreographed and premiered in Russia - and combine technique, narrative and live music to create the ultimate dance experience.

Romeo and Juliet is probably the world’s most famous love story, following the fate of the star-crossed lovers from their first meeting to their tragic deaths.

The show will be accompanied by one of Moscow City Ballet’s signature pieces, Swan Lake. The ballet is one of the great romantic stories, filled with drama and exquisite choreography. When Siegfried, a dashing young prince, falls in love with Odette, the beautiful Queen of the Swans, the sorcerer Von Rothbart is determined to use his evil magic to thwart their happiness.

And the delightful Sleeping Beauty inspired Tchaikovsky to write some of his most glorious music. This truly magical production features the delicate Princess Aurora, her gallant Prince, the beautiful Lilac Fairy and a host of fairy-tale characters.

Moscow City Ballet features exceptionally gifted young dancers, soloists and a sublime ballet, accompanied by the dynamic vitality of a live orchestra.

Romeo & Juliet will be performed on Monday and Tuesday at 7.30pm, Swan Lake from March 13-14 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm and Sleeping Beauty will be on stage from March 15-17 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £17.50-36, are available from the box office on 01225 448844.
