The Nutcracker live at Artrix in Bromsgrove

THE ROYAL Ballet’s festive extravaganza The Nutcracker will be screened at Bromsgrove’s Artrix on Tuesday, December 19.

There will be two showings of the production at 2pm and 7pm.

It centres around young Clara who creeps downstairs on Christmas Eve to play with her favourite present, a Nutcracker doll.

But the mysterious magician Drosselmeyer is waiting to sweep her off on a magical adventure.

After defeating the Mouse King, the Nutcracker and Clara travel through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy treats them to a wonderful display of dances. Back home, Clara thinks she must have been dreaming – but doesn’t she recognise Drosselmeyer’s nephew?

This definitive production by The Royal Ballet has been billed as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker.

With its festive period setting, dancing snowflakes and enchanting stage magic, Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet has become the perfect Christmas entertainment, with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognizable of all ballet scores.

Tickets are £15 for adults (£13 for over 60s and students) and £10 for under 16s.

They are available from or by calling 01527 577330.
