“Made for a wonderful family-oriented performance, full of Christmas merriment – a treat for old and young alike.”
––Jeena de Beer, Hong Kong Free Press

Join Clara and Fritz as they get swept up in a fantastic Christmas Eve journey in an astonishing world of wonder filled with a mischievous army of rats and their arch-rivals, the toy soldiers, and a host of colorful, magical characters, graceful snowflakes and playful dolls, as well as a super-sized doll house and a glittering Christmas tree. But the final question remains: can they help the heroic Nutcracker to defeat the villainous Rat King and reunite with his beautiful Ballerina?

Acclaimed Australian choreographer Terence Kohler retains all the elegance and charm of this famous ballet but re-interprets it in his own new visual style, making it a stand-out production from the others.

Set to Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable score containing some of the best-known melodies in ballet, this grand adventure intermingled with sparkling sets and costumes and scintillating dancing has fast become a favourite for Hong Kong audiences.
