Let Scottish Ballet take you on journey into Clara’s magical dream world; to the Land of Ice and Snow, where snowflakes come to life - and to the magical Kingdom of Sweets - the enchanted realm of the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy.
40 years since its premiere, this classic production has been lovingly reimagined by Olivier Award winning designer Lez Brotherston; adding sumptuous layers of plush Victoriana and traditional festive fare.
After a fun-filled Christmas party full of magic and celebrations, young Clara falls asleep and dreams that she helps the Nutcracker Prince to defeat an army of giant mice.
She is rewarded by a visit to the glittering Land of Ice and Snow, where snowflakes come to life, sparkling as they dance – and the magical Kingdom of Sweets – the enchanted Realm of the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy.
Peter Darrell’s magical world of The Nutcracker has been reimagined by Olivier Award winning designer Lez Brotherston, adding sumptuous layers of plush Victoriana and traditional festive fare to the original 1973 production.
The Scottish Ballet Orchestra accompanies live, performing the world famous Tchaikovsky score.
