A ballet classic is coming to a Kettering theatre this autumn.

Tchaikovsky’s classic Sleeping Beauty will be performed by the Russian State Ballet and Opera House at the Lighthouse Theatre, in Thurston Drive, in October.

The 45 dancers strong group will be performing the ballet throughout the country in the lead up to Christmas.

Alexej Ignatow, producer for Amande Concerts, said: “We take pride in introducing new Ballet companies and thoroughly enjoy bringing them to perform to audiences across the UK.

“This will remain a big part of our strategy for years to come, setting us apart from others. When you see the Russian State Ballet and Opera House logo, you can be sure of the quality of our productions.

“We endeavour to bring different artists every year. This means that although you may have seen Swan Lake one year, our performance the following year will contain different sets, costumes and choreography. It will feel like a different show altogether.”

The Russian composer’s work, first conceived in 1889, still remains popular, and this adaption will be scored to the original music.
