Blackpool’s Grand Theatre will stage three of the world’s most famous ballets this weekend when the Russian State Ballet of Siberia returns to the theatre with Coppélia, The Nutcracker and Swan Lake.

Coppélia (Friday at 7.30pm), right, is a light-hearted tale of mistaken identity and confused lovers, with music by Delibes.

The Nutcracker (Saturday, 2pm and 7.30pm), set to the music of Tchaikovsky, begins as night falls on Christmas Eve. When midnight strikes, we are swept away to a fairy-tale world where toy dolls spring to life.

Swan Lake (Sunday, 2pm and 5.30pm) is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score.
