MOSCOW City Ballet will perform two of the world’s most famous traditional ballets at The Assembly Rooms, Derby between March 18-20.

You can see Romeo And Juliet on March 18 and Swan Lake on March 19-20. The world’s most famous love story is set to Prokofiev’s dramatic score, a masterpiece of 20th century music. All the hustle and bustle of Renaissance Verona is brought to life in this powerful production.

Swan Lake, featured recently in the phenomenally successful movie The Black Swan, is performed by technically refined dancers and includes lavish sets, beautiful costumes and innovative choreography.

Moscow City Ballet makes a welcome return to the UK following a sensational 2010-2011 season which included sell-out performances and rave reviews. Tickets are £22-£30, (plus concessions), available from the box office on 01332 255800.
