What's On > Birmingham Royal Ballet - The Nutcracker

Play Video
Fri 28 Nov - Sat 13 Dec 2014 (ARCHIVED LISTING)

Christmas really must be coming - Nutcracker is now on until 13 Dec!  Enjoy one of the most famous classical ballets of all time, with Sir Peter Wright's sensational production.

BIRMINGHAM ROYAL BALLET: THE NUTCRACKER
 
This Christmas, make sure you and your family don't miss Sir Peter Wright's world-famous production, complete with sets and costumes by John Macfarlane, the designer of the Company's stunning Cinderella.
 
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.
