"…this expensive-looking production that combines the forces of the Royal Opera and the Royal Ballet…" The Guardian

Choreography: Alastair Marriott.

Based on Gogol's fantastical and comic story of the Devil's antics on Christmas Eve, this magical blend of opera and ballet is brought to vivid life in Francesca Zambello's colourful production. Magnificent set designs (Mikhail Mokrov) and costumes (Tatiana Noginova), and an excellent, largely Russian cast provide authenticity. Splendid dancing by The Royal Ballet and Cossack dancers completes the spectacle. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.

"It's pretty as a picture, no question - an animated pop-up book of naïve and colourful charm." Independent

"…this expensive-looking production that combines the forces of the Royal Opera and the Royal Ballet…" The Guardian

"[Mokrov's designs] positively glow with snowy Russian colour and charm, especially on Blu-ray...Polianichko makes an affectionate case for the score"
(BBC Music)
