A classic treat at Christmas

Evesham Editorial 27th Nov, 2019   0

A PERFECT festive evening will be on offer when Peter Wright’s much-loved Royal Ballet production of The Nutcracker is screened at Pershore Number 8.

Recorded at the Royal Opera House in 2016, this Christmas favourite will be screened on December 17 and 22 from 7.15pm and 3pm respectively.

Peter Wright’s nigh-on definitive production for The Royal Ballet ranks as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker.

It is Christmas Eve and Drosselmeyer the magician sweeps young Clara away on a fantasy adventure in which time is suspended, the family living room becomes a great battlefield, and a magical journey takes them through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets.

Tchaikovsky’s glittering score, the gorgeous festive stage designs and The Royal Ballet’s captivating dancing including an exquisite pas de deux between the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince.
