The National Ballet of Ireland, Ballet Ireland, is delighted to announce details of its sparkling, timeless Christmas classic; The Nutcracker.
It’s Christmas and at a party in her home, young Clara receives a Nutcracker doll as a Christmas present from her favourite uncle Drosselmeyer. Later, unable to sleep with the excitement, Clara goes downstairs to get her Nutcracker doll and falls asleep under the Christmas tree. The stroke of midnight sounds and the magic begins! With all of the time-honoured elements in place, Clara is swept along into a world of mice and soldiers, to the snowflake scene, on to the kingdom of the sweets and the delectable Sugar Plum Fairy. This timeless Christmas classic will to enthrall all who see it.
The company’s Director, Anne Maher, is delighted to announce that the opening night performance at the Gaiety Theatre will be danced by Royal Ballet star Melissa Hamilton and her partner Dawid Trzensimiech.
