LIVE FROM THE ROYAL BALLET: THE NUTCRACKER

8th December 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Choreographer: Peter Wright based on the style of Lev Ivanov

The Royal Ballet celebrates Peter Wrights 90th birthday with his much-loved production of this beautiful ballet, danced to Tchaikovskys magnificent score. The Royal Ballet’s glorious production of The Nutcracker, created by Peter Wright in 1984, is the production par excellence of an all-time ballet favourite. It is Christmas Eve and Drosselmeyer the magician sweeps young Clara away on a fantasy adventure in which time is suspended, the family living room becomes a great battlefield, and a magical journey takes them through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets. Tchaikovsky’s glittering score, the gorgeous festive stage designs and The Royal Ballet’s captivating dancing – including an exquisite pas-de-deux between the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince – make this Nutcracker the quintessential Christmas experience.

Café open beforehand for dinner and drinks from 5pm • 7.15pm • Running time 150 minutes / One interval • To book, please call 01768 868000 • Free parking • For live broadcasts, performances start promptly, so please arrive 20 minutes before. Latecomers will not be admitted.
