Consumed by his desires, Casanova lived every minute in a whirlwind of scandal and excess. But there's more to the man.

This enchanting story tells the tale of how Clara is given a wooden nutcracker as a Christmas present by Dr Drosselmeyer. During the Christmas party Clara and her brother Fritz fight over the nutcracker doll. Later that night Clara wakes and looks for the Nutcracker doll. When the clock strikes twelve, giant mice appear and fight with the toy soldiers. The nutcracker doll comes to life and joins in the battle. Clara finally kills the King Mouse with her shoe and The Nutcracker Doll is transformed into a handsome prince who takes Clara through the land of snow to the Kingdom of Sweet and the Palace of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Contemporary dance. Richard Alston, Artistic Director of The Place, the UK's leading centre for contemporary dance, is internationally recognised as one of the most influential and inspiring choreographers in British dance.
Scottish Ballet will mark the 25th anniversary of the death of Scottish born choreographer Sir Kenneth MacMillan with a recreation of his early narrative work Le Baiser de la F?e. Using Stravinsky's score (itself a homage to Tchaikovsky) MacMillan reveals the darker depths of Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tale The Ice Maiden. Le Baiser de la F?e was originally created in 1960 and has had only one revival since. Scottish Ballet will be working with the Benesh Notator, Diana Curry and designer Gary Harris to recreate the original production. In complete musical contrast is Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. Scottish Ballet's own production by Artistic Director, Christopher Hampson, uses only three dancers to convey a present day story of two brothers destined for different paths to enlightenment. Hampson has created a version that is relevant to our time; his The Rite of Spring is a brutal and physical response to the Stravinsky score. An exploration of rivalry, betrayal and sacrifice, Scottish Ballet's The Rite of Spring is at times violent, intense and thought-provoking.
Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui is one of Europe's most successful and inventive choreographers. His productions are like voluminous story books, full of quirky, wickedly observed characters, recognisable from real-life scenarios.
Deeply rooted in Argentinean culture, tango has fascinated and captivated the world with its sexuality, power and beauty. Cherkaoui's m?longa debuted in 2013, and is the first international large-scale tango production to be directed by a non-Argentine artist. After its highly successful UK premiere at Sadler's Wells, m?longa is now touring across the globe, to great critical acclaim offering audiences the chance to explore the traditional tango dance from another cultural perspective. Internationally renowned for his ground-breaking and critically revered award-winning productions such as Sutra and Babel(words), Cherkaoui takes the idea of a milonga as his starting point - those social dance-evenings held in intimate late night bars in Buenos Aires - and draws on traditional influences, adding a contemporary twist. Having collaborated with an incredibly talented cast of Argentinean dancers and live musicians, Cherkaoui has created "a very beautiful show indeed" (Daily Telegraph), bringing his own unique style to tango. Running time: 1hr 35mins (no interval)
