Last night, The Royal Ballet’s The Nutcracker was screened live across the world as part of our Live Cinema Season 2013/14. The screening included an exclusive backstage film, narrated by Royal Ballet Dancer Gary Avis. The film offers just a glimpse into the extensive preparation involved in staging the production, from decorating the Christmas tree, to preparing some 600 costumes, to keeping the choreography fresh. In case you missed it last night, or just want to find out more about The Nutcracker, you can watch it again here:
