Why see Festival Ballet Theatre - The Nutcracker?

Festival Ballet Theatre's fantastic production

Directed by Artistic Director Salwa Rizkalla, Festival Ballet Theatre's dazzling annual production of The Nutcracker returns this year to sweep you and your family out of the auditorium and into Clara's wonderful dream. With daring duels, the glittering Sugar Plum Fairy and an adventure to the Land of Sweets all backed by Tchaikovsky's unforgettable score, discover once more, or for the first time why it's the world's most beloved festive treat!

What is the story?

A charming coming-of-age story, we follow the journey of Clara, as she embarks on an adventure that most of us could only dream of, battling giant rodents and meeting quite literally, her Prince Charming in the form of a wooden nutcracker doll, who magically comes alive at the stroke of midnight on Christmas morning. After succeeding against the evil Mouse army, they venture to a magical world filled with dancing snowflakes, sweets and flowers, all ruled over by the benevolent Snow Queen and the Sugar Plum Fairy.
