The ballet will be visiting 25 venues across the UK for their 2018 tour, including Manchester, Oxford, Bristol, Blackpool, Hull, Liverpool, Brighton, Edinburgh and London.

Sergei Bobrov, artist director, said: It is always a pleasure to bring the unique traditions of Russian Ballet to British audiences.

"Touring across the UK with a full company of dancers as well as highly skilled musicians is always exciting, for me, it is very special to have the power of a symphony orchestra bringing the choreography to life on stage.’
