A timeless hallmark of the festive season, The Nutcracker has long been one of the most delightful ways to discover the enchantment of ballet and makes for a sparkling festive treat for the whole family. Tchaikovsky’s much-loved music is matched to a story of magic on Christmas Eve, and the journey of Clara and her Nutcracker to the Land of Fairytales brings with it some of the most familiar of all ballet moments.
No family should miss this beloved classical performance with an exuberant cast of the Ballet Theatre of the Republic of Belarus, a national treasure since 1933 that has been awarded UNESCO’s commemorative Five Continents Medal, in recognition of its considerable contribution to world culture.
The popularity of this show cannot be understated and it provides an unforgettable spark to everyone’s holiday season.
