The Nutcracker Comes To Dubai Theatres
The Nutcracker Comes To Dubai Theatres: Begin the festive season with sparkle and magic with a trip to see the world famous Moscow City Ballet perform their stunning and acclaimed production of The Nutcracker! Art For All is bringing this classical ballet to the intimate and sumptuous Madinat Theatre, where only a limited number of seats will be available for this stunning performance.
The ultimate Christmas ballet
The Nutcracker tells the story of a magical Christmas Eve adventure for a young girl who falls in love with a heroic but cursed prince. Dr Silbergaus hosts a Christmas Eve party for his daughter Clara. The guest of honour is Clara’s Godfather Drosselmeyer. He arrives bearing presents for Clara, including a book entitled The Nutcracker & the Mouse King. Clara is delighted with the book, her imagination running wild. Meanwhile, Drosselmeyer appears as Santa Clause, and later as a magician. He orders mechanical toys to be brought into the room. At the wave of his wand, three puppets appear – a Nutcracker, a Doll, and a Mouse King.
Later that night, Clara falls asleep and is transported into a magical world where sugar-plum fairies dance and there is a great battle between the Nutcracker and the Rat King.
One of the reasons we love the MCB’s performance (and why we keep asking them to come back) so much is that it strictly adhere’s to the classical choreography inspired by Tchaikovsky’s original score. Mesmerising, magical and oh so festive, the intimate surroundings of the Madinat Theatre means audiences can enjoy an truly exclusive evening of seasonal ballet. It’s the perfect way to open the festive celebrations.
“The ballet which is filled with the magic of Christmas is a perfect introduction to the art from, a simple story with instantly recognisable music from Tchaikovsky” – The Review Hub UK
So get mince pie and mulled beverages season truly underway by reserving your seats at the festive ballet event of the year. The only regret you’ll have is not booking soon enough.
