World famous Christmas opera to be screened at Lakeside

THE Royal Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker will be broadcast live at Lakeside for one night only.

On Thursday, December 12, Ballet lovers in Thurrock can see this beautiful production at the Vue cinema.

The Nutcracker is a firm family favourite.

It features a mesmerising score by Tchaikovsky, a Christmas tree that magically seems to grow, a fierce battle between the toy soldiers and the army of Mice led by the Mouse King, and the famous dance of The Sugar Plum Fairy danced by Royal Ballet Principal dancer Laura Morera, with Federico Bonelli as the Prince.

Last year’s The Nutcracker live in cinemas was number two in the UK Box Office that night, beating Skyfall.

This year’s live relay, which is presented by Former Royal Ballet Principal Darcey Bussell, will be screened across the world, spreading the festive experience.

The full Company of The Royal Ballet fills the stage with colour and energy while the set designs, beautiful costumes and impressive staging creates a magical atmosphere.
