The Royal Ballet: The Nutcracker Dec. 23, 27 and 30

December 23, 27 and 30th

You’ll never forget your first Nutcracker experience and there’s no better time to see this classic performance by the Royal Ballet Theater than on December 23, 27 and 30 in Digiplex Theaters.

This grand Christmas tradition takes place in a fantastical world and portrays the breathtaking scene unfolding in the living room of Clara Stahlbaum on Christmas Eve. 

The audience is fixated on the magical adventure that occurs in Clara Stahlbaum’s home as she watches her family’s Christmas tree grow to enormous size while life size mice scamper around the room and toy soldiers march towards her toy nutcracker as it springs to life.

Magic unfolds as Clara is transformed into a beautiful princess and the nutcracker into a handsome prince.  Clara and her prince Hans Peter meet and celebrate in a pas de deux, dance for two, before being enveloped in a magical snowstorm. The Nutcracker’s Sugar Plum Fairy dance with the Prince is world renown.

Russian composer Tchaikovsky based his famous musical score for the Arabian Dance on a Georgian lullaby that transforms the audience back in time to a beautiful fantasyland.  The glorious acts that unfold reveal a sense of magic and mystery that make Peter Wright’s classic production at the Royal Ballet an essential part of Christmas for everyone.
 At Digiplex Theaters December 23, 27 and 30.
