Why See Varna International Ballet - Nutcracker?
A late Christmas treat!
As part of their UK debut, Varna International Ballet is bringing three UK premiere productions to our shores in spring 2023, for the first time in 75 years! As part of a season including Swan Lake and Giselle, they also bring a little bit of (late, or early) Christmas spirit with this performance of that sweetest ballet treat - The Nutcracker!
What is the story?
We open on Christmas Eve, in the Stahlbaum house. There's music and presents and food, and the three Stahlbaum children are beside themselves with joy at the wonder of it all. There's danger on the horizon though, heralded by the arrival at the door of local magician Drosselmeyer. He brings bearing gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker. This is just the start of an adventure that will lead our characters into a war between mice and gingerbread men and through the Land of Sweets.
Performance date: 4 March 2023
