It’s a Nutcracker! like no other, adored by critics and audiences alike. With family-sized helpings of Bourne’s trademark wit, pathos and magical fantasy, Nutcracker! follows Clara’s bittersweet journey from a darkly comic Christmas Eve at Dr. Dross’ Orphanage, through a shimmering, ice-skating winter wonderland to the scrumptious candy kingdom of Sweetieland, influenced by the lavish Hollywood musicals of the 1930’s.
Tchaikovsky’s glorious score and Anthony Ward’s delectable sets and costumes combine with Bourne’s dazzling choreography to create a fresh and charmingly irreverent interpretation of the traditional Christmas favourite. Expect a sprinkling of delicious new surprises in this reinvented production .

Image description: Six dancers pose in a frothy explosion of pink costumes. Five of the dancers wear pale pink costumes with layered tutus and bodices dotted with white pompoms. On their heads they have frou-frou pink hats. In front of the group is a dancer with a strapless gown in a deeper shade of rose pink. They are posed against a mirror with a sparkling pink frame which multiples them.
