The opening night of Tchaikovsky’s family favourite will be showing at the venue in The Centre at 7.15pm.

Peter Wright’s enchanting production tells the story of Clara, whose Christmas is transformed by a visit from Drosselmeyer – a mysterious magician and maker of enchanted toys.

Drosselmeyer longs to break a curse that has turned his nephew, danced by Australian Principal Alexander Campbell, into a nutcracker doll.

Highlights of the show include a Christmas tree that magically grows, a battle between toy soldiers and an army of mice, 
and the role of the sugar plum fairy.

The ballet, which has been captivating audiences for 30 years, features talented dancers from The Royal Ballet School, enchanting music and stunning costumes.
