Be captivated by an enchanting Christmas Eve story, featuring a dance by the Sugar Plum fairy and a Waltz of the Flowers in the Land of the Sweets. Share the festive tradition with family and friends as Queensland Ballet brings the lovable characters of The Nutcracker to life.
The story has all the wondrous elements: a buoyant family party, a Christmas tree glittering with ornaments and a surprise magician with presents. As you enter the dream of a young girl, be enchanted by a world of dance featuring mice, toys and lollies that create magic for every imagination.
This classical ballet was first performed in Russia in 1892 and has become a cherished Christmas tradition the world over. Queensland Ballet’s production was choreographed by Ben Stevenson OBE in 1976 and premiered for Brisbane audiences in 2013. Now in its ninth season, be delighted by this Christmas tradition and get whisked away by The Nutcracker.
This production is supported by Valmai Pidgeon AM.
The performance lasts approximately two hours with one 20-minute interval.
