On Stage: The Royal Ballet’s Nutcracker

The Royal Ballet’s glorious production of The Nutcracker, created by Peter Wright in 1984, is the production par excellence of an all-time ballet favourite.

It is Christmas Eve and Drosselmeyer the magician sweeps young Clara away on a fantasy adventure in which time is suspended, the family living room becomes a great battlefield, and a magical journey takes them through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets. Tchaikovsky’s glittering score, the gorgeous festive stage designs and The Royal Ballet’s captivating dancing make this Nutcracker the quintessential Christmas experience.

The Moxie: On Stage is a new series showcasing world class performances from stages across the globe. This series is made possible thanks to a grant from the Springfield Regional Arts Council.
