by Emma Cann - Nov 30, 2015

Sir Peter Wright's production of The Nutcracker for the Birmingham Royal Ballet is widely regarded as the best production in country, if not the world, and it is not hard to see why. John McFarlane's lavish storybook designs create a magical world in which Clara takes centre stage. We follow Clara as she defeats King Rat, travels to the Land of Snow and is transformed into the Sugar Plum Fairy, the ballerina of her dreams. Whilst other interpretations of The Nutcracker struggle to maintain a compelling narrative, we share Clara's fear, delight and amazement at every turn. (more...)
