Make your holiday season complete with the Royal Opera House Dance series’ cinematic broadcast of The Nutcracker. Peter Wright’s production, first seen in 1984, is an exuberant retelling of the story of Clara, a little girl who gets her Christmas wish when the nutcracker she’s given comes to life. Along with the Nutcracker, Clara travels to the Land of the Sweets; there they meet the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Mouse King and a troupe of tin soldiers, dolls and more magical characters.
