The quintessential Christmas classic ballet, The Nutcracker, is back this holiday season by popular demand.
First staged in 2011, The Nutcracker brings audiences on a journey through the pre-WWI, turn of the century Shanghai featuring favourite and familiar characters including Clara, the Snow Queen, the Sugar Plum fairy and her Cavalier.
Based on a story by E.T.A Hoffman, the ballet tells of the adventures of Clara after she receives a beautifully crafted doll from Dr Drosselmeyer during a Christmastime celebratory party. With choreography and staging by SDT Artistic Director Janek Schergen, set to the iconic music of Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, this enchanting ballet features a spectacular set and gorgeous costumes by local designer Aaron Yap, as well as characters that will dance their way into your hearts!
