Vienna Festival Ballet

One of the world's best-loved ballets is coming to Weston Playhouse, and the Mercury is giving readers a chance to win tickets to see the show.

The Vienna Festival Ballet (VFB) will bring Christmas classic The Nutcracker to the High Street theatre next month.

The performance returns to the town by popular demand, and the show centres around Clara and her nutcracker doll, which magically transforms into a princely soldier.

The pair's adventures see her and her doll combat the Mouse King and join the Sugar Plum Fairy, as well as her cavalier, through the Land Of Snow to a kingdom made of sweets.

Austrian dancer Peter Mallek founded The Vienna Festival Ballet in 1980, and it has been making memorable productions for the past 37 years.

The Vienna Festival Ballet will perform The Nutcracker at Weston Playhouse, in High Street, on November 27 at 7.30pm.
