Swansea Grand Theatre
Mon 26  Wed 28 Feb, 7.30pm
+ matinee Wed 2.30pm
 Join Russia’s acclaimed ballet company, The Russian Ballet of Siberia, for three nights of unforgettable performances at Swansea Grand Theatre this February.

Accompanied by The Orchestra of the Russian State Ballet, this will be the company’s 16th UK tour and will feature exquisite performances of three of world’s most popular ballets.

The run starts with Cinderella on Mon 26 Feb at 7.30pm, the world’s favourite rags to riches fairy-tale where dreams can come true. This performance represents a magical mix of Prokofiev’s energetic score, lively choreography and colourful costumes.

Based on a traditional folk-tale, The Snow Maiden will be performed on Tue 27 Feb, 7.30pm, set in the snow covered landscape of rural Russia, this seasonal sparkler follows the Snow Maiden as she dances into the human world.

A suitably awe inspiring finale, Swan Lake, the greatest romantic ballet of all time, is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score on Wed 28 Feb at 2.30pm & 7.30pm.

The Russian State Ballet of Siberia has established itself as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and depth. The soloists and corps de ballet are exceptional, delighting audiences with their breath-taking physical ability and beautiful costumes as each storyline unfolds to the live accompaniment of the orchestra.

The company comprises over 40 dancers and 30 musicians. For the 2018 season, the company will merge traditional and digital worlds with an imaginative staging set against an ever-changing colourful backdrop with magical special effects.

Commenting on the productions, acclaimed director Sergei Bobrov 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.’

ED BYRNE – SPOILER ALERT (16+)
Swansea Grand Theatre
Wed 7 Mar, 8pm


One of Ireland’s greatest exports, comedy genius Ed Byrne, returns to Swansea with his brand new show, Spoiler Alert (16+), at Swansea Grand Theatre on Wed 7 Mar at 8pm.

Who better to introduce the show than Ed himself?

“I originally intended to call the show, I’ll Millennial You in a Minute, but my promoter considered the title, “off-puttingly baffling”. That’s my own chainsaw in the photo, by the way. Is life that bad or have we good reason to complain about it? Are we filled with righteous anger at a world gone wrong or are we all just a bunch of whiny little brats? In short, are we spoiled? Come and watch as Byrne takes this question, turns it upside down and shakes it until the funny falls out. Go on, spoil yourself.”

Recognized as one of the finest observational comics in the industry, Ed’s television credits are countless (provided you’re really bad at counting); Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, The Graham Norton Show, Live At The Apollo, The One Show, Comic Relief Bake Off 2015, The World’s Most Dangerous Roads and, most recently, he and Dara O Briain filmed the follow up their Big Adventure show for BBC2 entitled Dara and Ed’s Road to Mandalay

Tickets are available at our Box Office on 01792 475715 or online at www.swanseagrand.co.uk for £24.50*.
*All tickets include a 50p Restoration Fund contribution. Online booking fee applies.
