A WORLD-renowned production of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker ballet is coming to Cambridge, and three lucky Ely Standard readers will have the chance to win tickets to this spectacular performance from a host of international ballet stars.

Set in winter-time Germany, village children prepare for the festive season by decorating their fir tree. When the local magician brings their decorated Christmas tree to life, all kinds of fear and wonder ensue.

The title role of Maria will be played by Kristina Tarentieva, winner of this year's top international dance prize in Vienna. More than 120 dancers and a full orchestra will really bring a sense of festive cheer to the faces of Corn Exchange audiences.

A family ticket, and two pairs of tickets are up for grabs. To enter the competition, just answer this question: Which composer wrote the music for the Nutcracker?
