Don't miss Alexi Ratmansky's interpretation of The Golden Cockere, a farcical tragicomedy inspired by the Russian folk tale from Alexander Pushkin, after Mikhail Fokine's original grand production. Telling the tale of the bumbling King Dodon and his rather odd attempt to foresee danger to his kingdom with a prophetical chicken, this vivid production is a hotbed of stunning choreography, creative sets, and gloriously glittering costumes!

Pushkin's Onegin is recreated in dance with flawless storytelling skill by John Cranko.

Tchaikovsky's vivid music brings alive the world of Imperial Russia with beauty, drama and passion. More info
