A PERFECT festive evening will be staged at Evesham’s Regal Cinema when Peter Wright’s much-loved Royal Ballet production of The Nutcracker takes to the stage.
The Port Street venue will be among a host of cinemas nationwide to screen the glorious production live from the Royal Opera House on Tuesday, December 5 from 7.15pm, Sunday, December 10 at 2pm and Tuesday, January 2 from 5pm.
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.
With its festive period setting, dancing snowflakes and enchanting stage magic, Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet has become the quintessential Christmas experience, with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognizable of all ballet scores.
The performance lasts about two hours 15 minutes with an interval.
Tickets are available at £20 for adults and the royal box or £15 for concessions or children online at www.theregal.ac or the Box Office on 01386 421007.
