The Nutcracker - Varna International Ballet


This event has passed.

Raymond Gubbay presents Varna International Ballet, returning for a new season in 2024 with The Nutcracker. Brought to life by magical special effects, performed by Varna International Ballet and accompanied by a live orchestra.

This most famous of fantasy ballets for all the family begins as night falls on Christmas Eve.  As snowflakes fall outside, the warm glow of the open fire sends flickering shadows across the boughs of the Christmas tree and all the presents beneath. When midnight strikes we are swept away to a fairy-tale world where nothing is quite as it seems, toy dolls spring to life, the Mouse-king and his mouse-army battle with the Nutcracker Prince and we travel through the Land of Snow to an enchanted place where the magic really begins…
