Scottish Ballet presents Peter Darrell's THE NUTCRACKER
Music Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreography Peter Darrell, featuring original scenarios by Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa
Original Philip Prowse designs reimagined by Lez Brotherston
Lovingly recreated for audiences, Scottish Ballet proudly presents Peter Darrell's The Nutcracker. Crafted for Scotland by the company's founding Artistic Director, a famous story-teller and an incredible dance-maker, this Nutcracker is full of magical memories.
Now audiences can share this dream-making production with family and friends once more, over 40 years since it first premiered.
After a fun-filled Christmas party full of magic and celebrations, young Clara falls asleep and dreams that she helps the Nutcracker Prince defeat an army of giant mice.
She is rewarded by a visit to the glittering Land of Ice and Snow, where snowflakes come to life, sparkling as they dance - and the magical Kingdom of Sweets - the enchanted Realm of the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy.
Peter Darrell's magical world of The Nutcracker has been reimagined by Olivier Award-winning designer Lez Brotherston, adding sumptuous layers of plush Victoriana and traditional festive fare to the original 1973 production.
The Scottish Ballet Orchestra accompanies live, performing the world-famous Tchaikovsky score.
