ROH: The Nutcracker on Monday 3rd December 2018
Royal Opera House
Ballet in two acts
Choreography Peter Wright after Lev Ivanov
Music Pyotr il’yich Tchaikovsky
A Christmas treat for the whole family and a classic with a special place in the hearts of ballet fans around the world.
The Nutcracker has long been one of
the most delightful ways to discover the enchantment of ballet – and makes for a delicious seasonal treat for all the family. Tchaikovsky’s much-loved music is matched to a magical adventure on Christmas Eve for Clara and her Nutcracker doll. Their journey to the Land of Sweets brings with it some
of the most familiar of all ballet moments, such as the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Waltz of the Flowers. Peter Wright’s production for The Royal Ballet keeps true to the spirit of this Russian ballet classic, with period details and dancing snow flakes. The many solo roles and ensembles put the world-class skills of the Company to the fore in this Christmas classic.
