Love is a tough nut to crack! A joyous tale for all the family this Christmas.

Once upon a time, a boy, Peter fell in love with a girl, Clara. Clara was in Peter’s class at school yet oblivious to his true feelings, and Peter was afraid to tell her. Using the nickname, ‘The Nutcracker’, he befriended Clara online. The two friends, facing their final year exams and end of life as they knew it, grew close. Clara longed to mee thte boy she was falling for before her Christmas graduation. She didn’t realise he was right in front of her all along.

Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score is brought to life in this groundbreaking interpretation of a great ballet classic. Ivan Cavallari has combined traditional Nutcracker themes – Christmas, the nut, the great battle, dancers from around the world – engaging new plot and characters, set against an Australian summer backdrop.

A visually stunning set by Edoardo Sanchi and haute-couture costumes by Christina Smith, combine with Cavallari’s superb choreography to create a truly visionary ballet that remains as captivating as the original.
