Vienna Festival Ballet Celebrates its 34th Anniversary
Vienna Festival Ballet celebrates their 34th anniversary with a UK tour from September to December 2014 with one of the most famous Tchaikovsky great classics, The Nutcracker.
The enchanting tale of The Nutcracker is one of the world’s best-loved ballets and centres around Clara and her nutcracker doll, which magically transforms into a princely soldier. Their adventures see Clara and the Nutcracker doll combat the Mouse King, and join the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier on a wonderful journey through a shimmering winter land scene to a kingdom made entirely of sweets.
Returning by popular demand, following several successful performances, including Sleeping Beauty earlier this year, Vienna Festival Ballet’s The Nutcracker promises to be a delightful treat for ballet fans and interested observers alike. The performances also offer an ideal opportunity to introduce children to the art and skills of ballet.
The celebrated Austrian dancer, Peter Mallek, founded the company after his illustrious career as a dancer of international renown, in 1980. Now in its 34th year of producing quality ballet productions, the company continues to experience remarkable success and perform great classical ballets all over the world. VFB is known for its beautiful and lavish hand-made costumes and head dresses. Its productions have all the elegance and extravagance associated with the best of ballet.
Notable for the continued freshness and strength of its dancing casts, VFB has top-talented dancers including graduates from the Royal Ballet School, British, Australian and Italian soloists, and guest stars from Vienna and South Africa.
