A CHRISTMAS TREAT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY: THE ROYAL BALLET’S THE NUTCRACKER
A classic with a special place in the hearts of ballet fans around the world, festive favourite The Nutcracker will be shown at the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven, on Thursday 3 January in a special encore screening recorded at Covent Garden in the heart of London.
A family favourite, The Nutcracker is based on E.T.A Hoffmann’s beloved Christmas tale. The story follows Clara and the enchanted Nutcracker as they defeat the evil Mouse King, and go on a magical journey to the Kingdom of Sweets where they meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and an array of other memorable characters. The ballet is set to one of Tchaikovsky’s most ravishing scores, which perfectly captures the spirit of the festive season. Peter Wright’s production has enchanted audiences since it was first performed by The Royal Ballet in 1984 and continues to be a staple of the Company repertory.
Royal Ballet Principal Marianela Nuñez will dance the Sugar Plum Fairy, joined by Vadim Muntagirov as her Prince, Anna Rose O’Sullivan as Clara, Marcelino Sambé as Hans Peter (the Nutcracker) and Gary Avis as Drosselmeyer.
The Royal Opera House cinema broadcasts offer audiences the best seats in the house and include exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and interviews presented by Darcey Bussell and Ore Oduba and incredibly detailed close-ups of performers.
