A beloved Christmas ballet receives an enchanting kid-friendly incarnation this festive season.
Thanks to the renowned production company, Storytime Ballet, Sydney’s children are encouraged to dress in their favourite ballet-inspired outfits as they witness Tchaikovsky’s beautiful ballet, The Nutcracker.
The current production of The Nutcracker was created as an immersive experience intended to conjure pure light-hearted fun, and follows Clara as she goes on a magical journey and meets the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Mouse King and The Nutcracker Prince.
According to Artistic Director David McAllister, “These specially designed Storytime Ballets allow us to tour more extensively and increase accessibility to ballet across Australia. It means we can provide the perfect first ballet experience for more Australian families.”
Why not give the gift of ballet this festive season?
