Central: The Nutcracker
Central School of Ballet | Dance
This December Ballet Central returns to the ADC Theatre to perform their adaption of the Christmas classic, The Nutcracker.
Directed by Ballet Central Artistic Director Christopher Marney, Ballet Central will showcase their dazzling 45-minute version of the time-honoured Nutcracker, introducing children of all ages to a new version of the iconic Tchaikovsky score. This is a limited run of just 8 performances, a perfect prelude to the Christmas season.
Imagine… it is Christmas Eve and Clara explores the fantasy world of Drosselmeyer’s toyshop. As her dreams come alive before her eyes the dolls take her on a journey to the enchanted forest and onwards to the Kingdom of Sweets. Join us as Clara meets all the colourful characters, from the Nutcracker Prince to the Sugar Plum Fairy.
