You already know the story, and you definitely know the tunes! But there’s much more to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker than the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. As Christmas approaches, join conductor Andrey Boreyko, the RSNO and RSNO Youth Chorus as they deliver a musical selection box full of fantasy, colour and irresistible tunes. Also included: a powerful salute to Ukraine and a very different Tchaikowsky Violin Concerto – played by the ‘stunning’ (The Guardian) Ilya Gringolts.
