A Tchaikovsky Trilogy

I have had the pleasure this year of watching all three of Tchaikovsky‘s ballets at my local theatre.

They are all such classics that I thought I’d share a scene from each.

First up, here’s The Nutcracker, specifically the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy:

Now here’s Swan Lake:

And finally, the one I saw last night, Sleeping Beauty. In this clip, Strictly‘s very own Darcey Bussell plays as Princess Aurora :

Everything about the production, put on by the Birmingham Royal Ballet company, from the sets, to the costumes, and of course the dancing, was absolutely enchanting.
