Description

This all-time ballet favourite, in which young Clara is swept into a fantasy adventure when one of her Christmas presents comes to life, is at its most enchanting in Peter Wright's glorious production – as fresh as ever in its 25th year. Tchaikovsky's ravishing score, period designs by Julie Trevelyan Oman (including an ingenious magical Christmas Tree), an exquisite Sugar Plum Fairy (Miyako Yoshida), a chivalrous Prince (Steven McRae) and vibrant dancing by The Royal Ballet make for a captivating performance. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.

One of the very nicest Nutcracker I have ever seen. Every member of the cast seems to be so pleased and delighted to be participating.
