The Nutcracker ballet is a beautiful fantasy, set on Christmas Eve. Clara (Sae Maeda @sae_maeda) receives a nutcracker doll from her godfather Drosselmeyer, During the night, the magic happens. As Clara deams, the nutcracker come to life. Clara helps him and the toy soldiers in a battle with the mice. After defeating the mice and their king, the Nutcracker (Joseph Sissens @Joseph.sissens) leads Clara through an enchanted forest with snowflakes dancing around them, to reach the Land of Sweets. They are treated to dances, including the wonderful Arabian Dance (Melissa Hamilton @__melissahamilton and Lukas Brendsrod @lukasbbrend) and the Sugar Plum Fairy (Fumi Kaneko @fumikaneko_) and her Prince (William Bracewell @williambracewell) reward Clara and dance a stunning pas de deux together, before Clara and the Nutcracker leave the Land of Sweets and Clara awakes with her nutcracker doll.
This performance by the Royal Ballet was fabulous from start to finish and the pas de deux with the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince was truly breathtaking
