In the Kingdom of Sweets – The Nutcracker Suite

Nigel Bates

10.30 am on 19th November 2020 via Zoom

1 hour lecture followed by Question and Answer session.

This presentation will consist of one lecture and will be delivered on Zoom Webinar. We will contact you nearer the date with the exact timings and also with instructions about using Zoom. This will be a free event for members.

The Nutcracker ballet has delighted audiences for many decades yet it was deemed a failure at its initial performances.  This lecture takes a close look at how this well-loved ballet now takes its rightful place on stage and how the music of Tchaikovsky along with story-telling, design, dance and a little bit of stage ingenuity come together to give a most magical experience for the audience.”

This is free for all members.
