The Nutcracker

First published in Stage News

ENGLISH National Ballet performs Wayne Eagling’s The Nutcracker for the first time outside London at The Mayflower next week.

The dates follow last year’s sold out Christmas season which attracted audiences of over 70,000 people.

Set in a world of frosty Edwardian elegance designed by Peter Farmer, this captivating production takes audiences on an enchanting journey with Clara, her Nutcracker doll and the magician Drosselmeyer.

In costumes shimmering with Swarovski Crystallised elements, English National Ballet’s dancers bring to life Tchaikovsky’s eternally popular score which features the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Waltz of the Flowers and many other familiar favourites.

The festive family treat runs from Thursday to Sunday.
