Classic dances are being performed at Northampton’s Royal & Derngate this week to mark the 25th anniversary of the Moscow City Ballet.

The company will be performing Swan Lake today and The Nutcracker tomorrow and Saturday.

Meanwhile, The Nutcracker focuses on the tale of Clara’s magical adventure with her Nutcracker Prince, including a visit to the Land of Sweets and trip to see the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Performances will be held at 7.30pm, with a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday. Tickets cost £18-£35 from 01604 624811.
