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 favourite. It is Christmas Eve and

Herr

Drosselmeyer the

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.
