Royal Opera House: Screening: The Nutcracker
PLEASE NOTE CORRECT START TIME OF 7.15pm. PLEASE IGNORE INCORRECT START TIME PRINTED IN THE WITHAM BROCHURE
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 livingroom 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.
