What's On > Birmingham Royal Ballet - The Nutcracker
|Let yourself get swept up in the excitement of Christmas with one of the most famous classical ballets of all time, Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker.
|BRB THE NUTCRACKER|
Sir Peter Wright's unparalleled, world-famous production, complete with sets and costumes by John Macfarlane, the designer of the Company's stunning Cinderella, performs in Birmingham Hippodrome this Christmas.
What more could a young girl ask for at Christmas, than for all her dreams to come true? Having crept downstairs at midnight to play with her new Nutcracker doll, Clara is swept up in a fantasy of toy soldiers, giant rats, snow fairies, magic and mystery. After saving her beloved Nutcracker from the King of the Rats, she is whisked away to an enchanted land and dances the night away in his arms, meeting a host of strange and exotic characters, before she is finally transformed into a beautiful ballerina.
The night passes in a blur and she wakes up on Christmas morning, at the foot of the Christmas tree, with memories that will stay with her forever, as the memory of this amazing production will stay with everyone who sees it.
