Join Clara on her Christmas Eve adventure to an enchanting winter wonderland
Sir Peter Wright’s version of this firm festive favourite returns to the Hippodrome courtesy (of course) of Birmingham Royal Ballet.
Created in 1990 as a thank-you to the city for its support of the company following its move to the Midlands from London’s Sadler Wells, Sir Peter’s production is seen by many as the finest interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent and mesmerising score.
In true Christmas spirit, the story follows the young Clara as she’s swept up in a fantasy of soldiers, giant rats, snow fairies, magic and mystery, before finally being transformed into a beautiful ballerina.
A magical, must-see show for theatre-going dance lovers everywhere, the production was last year enhanced by a £1million makeover.
Matthew Bourne’s magical dance production.
An enchanting theatrical experience for all the family.
Ever wondered just how ballet dancers do what they do?
