On Thursday, 8 December at 7.15pm The Royal Ballet’s festive family favourite The Nutcracker will be screened live to over 450 cinemas across the UK.
Starring Principal dancers Francesca Hayward as Clara, Federico Bonelli as The Prince and Lauren Cuthbertson as The Sugar Plum Fairy.
A Christmas classic, The Nutcracker captures the excitement of the holiday season with its magical story, dazzling costumes and its memorable score by Tchaikovsky. Currently, all shows leading up to Christmas are sold out, which makes a ticket for the 8th even more desirable.
On top of that, a cinema screening of a Royal Opera House production provides the best seat in the house – audiences can see every sequin on the Sugar Plum’s Fairy tutu, every exciting leap by The Prince and every graceful step by the twenty-four beautiful Snowflakes in the production.
The performance will be relayed live from Covent Garden.
