BIRMINGHAM Royal Ballet’s critically-acclaimed production of The Nutcracker has captured the hearts and imaginations of generations of theatregoers to become an annual tradition and the much-loved Christmas show returns to the Birmingham Hippodrome between November 23 and December 13.
Created in 1990 as a gift to the city of Birmingham, Sir Peter Wright’s The Nutcracker combines gigantic sets, lavish costumes, 60 dancers and Tchaikovsky’s instantly recognisable music played by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia.
The action follows young Clara as she is swept away into an enchanting winter wonderland of dancing snowflakes and a Sugar Plum Fairy. Her magical Christmas tree and her handsome prince with his army of toy soldiers promise an unforgettable delight.
Tickets, priced from £15, are available from birminghamhippodrome.com or by calling 0844 338 5000.
