BALLET IN TWO ACTS
LIVE IN CINEMAS THURSDAY 8 DECEMBER 2016, 7.15PM
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.
All tickets £15
APPROXIMATE RUNNING TIME 2 HOURS 15 MINUTES, INCLUDING ONE INTERVAL.
