The nights are drawing in and after Halloween and Bonfire Night, thoughts are turning to baubles and figgy puddings – Christmas is on the way, and with it Royal Ballet favourite The Nutcracker.
With preparations well underway at Covent Garden, audiences will be offered a glimpse into rehearsals as part of an ROH Insights event on 16 November 2017 at 7.30pm GMT, which will be streamed for free via Facebook Live. If you don't have a Facebook account, you can still watch on this page by clicking play on the video below after we go live.
The event will feature rehearsals of the famous Sugar Plum Fairy duet, as well as dancers being coached through the Rose Fairy solo and a closer look at the costumes.

The ballet will be relayed live to cinemas around the world on 5 December 2017. Find your nearest cinema and sign up to our mailing list.
