Nutcracker (ballet)

I blogged about The Nutcracker around this time last year so I had thought I would give it a miss this year. However, there is such a concerted effort to make sure that everyone sees the ballet during December that I am blogging again! What do I mean by this? Well, there are three different performances on offer between the 2nd and the 14th of December. No excuses to miss it then! There's a synopsis of the plotline on my previous post so I won't repeat it again here.

The first performance is a live production at the Congress Theatre by the Russian State Opera and Ballet Theatre of Astrakhan. It will feature a 30-piece orchestra playing for the dancers choreographed by Konstantin Uralskii.
Congress Theatre, Mon 2nd Dec, 19.30.
Tickets various prices, available online, by calling 01323 412000, or in person at the Congress Theatre Box Office and Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre.

Ten days later, the Royal Opera House will host a screening of their performance to Cineworld in Sovereign Harbour. Featuring Laura Morera as the Sugar Plum Fairy and Federico Bonelli as The Prince, the broadcast lasts just over two hours and will include an interval.
Cineworld, Thu 12th Dec, 19.15.
Tickets £17.90 adults, £14.20 concessions, available online, by calling 0845 200 2000, or in person from the foyer.

Last but by no means least, we return to the Congress Theatre for the Southern Youth Ballet production. Again a live performance with an orchestra, this Nutcracker will be conducted by Kenneth Roberts and will feature local young dancers aged from eight years old upwards.
Congress Theatre, Sat 14th Dec, 17.00.
Tickets various prices, available online, by calling 01323 412000, or in person at the Congress Theatre Box Office and Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre.
