The Russian State Ballet of Siberia is planning a triumphant return to the UK in 2017 - and is making stops in Norwich and Ipswich.
The show will be held in vanues accross the country from January to February and includes performances of five of the world's most popular ballets. The group is under the artistic directorship of Sergei Bobrov and remains one of Russia's leading ballet companies.
The show, never lacking in grandeur, includes more than 40 dancers and 30 musicians.
'It is always a pleasure to bring the unique traditions of Russian Ballet to British audiences. Touring 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,' said Mr Bobrov.
The ballets being performed in Norwich will be Coppélia, La Fille mal gardée and Swan Lake.

Coppélia, great for first time ballet-goers and families, follows the tale of eccentric toymaker Dr Coppelius through song and dance. The dance is set in a doll-maker's workshop.
La Fille mal gardée is one of the oldest ballets still regularly performed - it's a classic ballet set in a pastoral scene where a farm boy woos a farmer's daughter, weaving together comedy, romance and rivalry.
