English Youth Ballet present: The Nutcracker
THE NUTCRACKER BALLET COMES TO NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE
English Youth ballet presents a dazzling, colourful and appealing interpretation of the famous Nutcracker ballet, featuring an impressive cast of up to 100 young dancers. The ensemble of dances, Tchaikovsky’s beautiful music and the magic of the sets and beautiful costumes create Clara’s dream of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Godfather Drosselmeyer gives Clara the Nutcracker Doll and her love for him transforms him back to the Nutcracker Prince. He takes Clara through the land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets where dances are celebrated in her honour.
