Dick Whittington
FROM:08-12-2018
TO:30-12-2018
+ More Info +

Hoping to find fame and fortune in London, our young hero Dick Whittington makes his way down Ye Olde M1 with nothing but a sandwich and a can-do attitude; but he’s out of luck until he meets a friendly cat with a knack for catching rats. As his cat gets to work ridding the city of its furry pests, it seems Dick’s dream will come true. Little does he know the scary King Rat - a nasty geezer with an army of rodents at his command - is getting ready to pounce.

Dick Whittington is one of the nation’s best loved rags-to-riches stories. Buxton's favourite Dame, James Holmes (‘Clive’ from the hit comedy series Miranda) returns as Dame Sarah the Cook, while Gabrielle Green ('Katrina' from CBBC's Wolfblood) is the lovely Alice Fitzwarren.

La Fille mal gardée

TO:04-01-2019
+ More Info +

Formed in 1981, the Russian State Ballet of Siberia has quickly established itself as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and unusual depth. The soloists and corps de ballet are superb and never fail to delight audiences with their breath-taking physical ability and dazzling costumes.

Recreated by Alexander Gorsky, La Fille mal gardée remains one of the oldest ballets still regularly performed. A gentle tale of love thwarted, unrequited and found, it is a masterpiece of comedy. With plenty of ribbons, romance and rivalry, it conjures up a world of pastoral simplicity where a farm boy woos a flirty farmer’s daughter and they find inventive ways to avoid her mother. Complete with virtuoso pas de deux, maypole and clog dances, this classic ballet will send you home happy, delighting those enjoying it for the very first time as well as those who want to see it again and again.

Tickets: £35-£42.50

Swan Lake
FROM:05-01-2019
TO:05-01-2019
+ More Info +

Formed in 1981, the Russian State Ballet of Siberia has quickly established itself as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and unusual depth. The soloists and corps de ballet are superb and never fail to delight audiences with their breath-taking physical ability and dazzling costumes.

Swan Lake, the greatest romantic ballet of all time is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score. From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. Odile, the temptress in black tulle, seduces the Prince by spinning with captivating precision to the spellbound purity of the swan queen while Odette flutters with emotional intensity. This dual role of Odette/Odile is one of ballet’s most technical challenges.

Tickets: £35-£42.50
Groups (8+)/Senior/Disabled: £3.25 off (not Dress Circle)
JSA/Income Support/Students/Children: ½ price (not Dress Circle)

The Nutcracker
FROM:06-01-2019
TO:06-01-2019
+ More Info +

Formed in 1981, the Russian State Ballet of Siberia has quickly established itself as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and unusual depth. The soloists and corps de ballet are superb and never fail to delight audiences with their breath-taking physical ability and dazzling costumes.

This most famous of fantasy ballets for all the family, The Nutcracker, begins as night falls on Christmas Eve. As snowflakes fall outside, the warm glow of the open fire sends flickering shadows across the boughs of the Christmas tree and all the presents beneath. When midnight strikes we are swept away to a fairy-tale world where nothing is quite as it seems, toy dolls spring to life, the Mouse King and his mouse-army battle with the Nutcracker Prince and we travel through the Land of Snow to an enchanted place where the magic really begins...

Martin’s guitar playing has earned him a high level of respect and recognition; he was voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK for his playing on ‘Aqualung’. His playing on the album ‘Crest of a Knave’ earned him a Grammy award in 1988.
