The Nutcracker: The Royal Ballet ENCORE SCREENING

Christmas simply wouldn’t be Christmas without The Royal Ballet’s classic production of The Nutcracker.

With Tchaikovsky’s mesmerizing score, a Christmas tree that magically grows, a battle between toy soldiers and an Army of Mice led by The Mouse King, and the famous role of the Sugar Plum Fairy danced by Royal Ballet Principal Lauren Cuthbertson with her Prince, Principal dancer Federico Bonelli, this event is not to be missed.

Peter Wright’s enchanting production tells the story of Clara, danced by Royal Ballet Principal Francesca Hayward, whose Christmas is transformed by a visit from Drosselmeyer, a mysterious magician and maker of magical toys. Drosselmeyer longs to break a curse that has turned his nephew, danced by Australian Principal Alexander Campbell, into a nutcracker doll.
