A festive fantasy world in a cherished family ballet.
6 - 21 December, Playhouse QPAC
With Queensland Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Mogrelia
Share in the seasonal magic with Queensland Ballet’s The Nutcracker! When good children should be tucked up in bed, little Clara is still wide awake. The clock chimes midnight – and a wondrous fantasy world unfolds! Led by the valiant Nutcracker, brave toy soldiers defend Clara against giant mice. Transformed into a Prince, the Nutcracker leads Clara on a magical journey to the Kingdom of Sweets to meet the Sugar Plum Fairy.
With the magnificent music of Tchaikovsky and sumptuous sets and costumes, this new production of Ben Stevenson’s Nutcracker is a must-see Christmas treat.
