Event

The Nutcracker
Conducted by Koen Kessels
Directed by Peter Wright
Choreographed by Peter Wright after Lev Ivanov
1 hr 49 mins

A magician with secrets, an enchanted gift, a battle with the Mouse King, a guiding angel and a visit through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets: it must be the seasonal favorite, The Nutcracker. The ballet draws on all the imagination and fantasy of E.T.A. Hoffmann's story of Christmas Eve, when young Clara creeps downstairs for one of her presents, but finds herself instead at the start of a night of magical adventures. The designs for this now classic production create the real world of the 19th-century  even when the Christmas tree magically grows and the toy soldiers come to life to fight the Mouse King! The beautifully colored imaginings of the fantasy Sugar Garden and its celebratory dances make a fabulous contrast  the Sugar Plum Fairy is just one of the delights you might discover here  and Peter Wright's production tells the story clearly from its mysterious start to its happy conclusion. Tchaikovsky's music is some of the most instantly memorable of all ballet, with a wealth of famous melodies. This is classical ballet at its most approachable and visually entrancing, with something for everyone to enjoy, from the youngest in the family to the oldest. It's a present to unwrap yourself this Christmas for that bit of extra magic.  Courtesy of Opus Arte
