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 favorite.
It is Christmas Eve and Herr Drosselmeyer, a 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 — including an exquisite pas de deux between the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince — make this “Nutcracker” the quintessential Christmas experience.
This screening is part of the Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season—the Tropic is proud to present this cultural series throughout the end of 2019 and into 2020.
