Chance to see The Nutcracker in Redditch

Correspondent 11th Nov, 2017

ONE of Tchaikovsky’s most famous compositions and a popular Christmas ballet presentation, The Nutcracker, will be brought to life by Ballet Theatre UK at the Palace Theatre Redditch.

Taking place this Saturday, November 11, and featuring 24 international dancers, The Nutcracker recounts the adventures of young Clara on the night before Christmas, when after falling asleep with her Nutcracker, an army of mice attack her toys.

Clara and her Nutcracker then travel together to the ‘Land of the Sweets’ where the Sugar Plum Fairy is reunited with her prince – and where the magic of Christmas is born.

Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable musical score combines magical choreography, exquisite costumes and breathtaking scenery, that together creates an atmosphere of fantasy and illusion.

With grand sets and stunning costumes, The Nutcracker promises to be brighter and more splendid than ever before, making it a must-see highlight on the Christmas calendar for the whole family.

This truly is a ballet production that will leave you with a sense of warmth and treasured memories this festive season.

Tickets are available in person from the box office or on 01527 65203 priced from £18 (£13 children) or buy online at www.redditchpalacetheatre.co.uk.
