Christmas simply wouldn’t be Christmas without The
Nutcracker. It opens with the Christmas festivities of little Clara
and her family and progresses through a sequence of dreams
and enchantments that take Clara on a magical journey.
Peter Wright’s enchanting production mines the colour of
Tchaikovsky’s score, retaining exquisite surviving fragments
of the original Ivanov choreography, including the beautiful
pas de deux for the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.
