The Nutcracker

Lyric Theatre, QPAC

Queensland Ballet's The Nutcracker returns to Brisbane this festive season set to open at QPAC from December 13.

This holiday favourite is perfect for the whole family to enjoy with a snowy backdrop, festive parties, Christmas carollers, and a touch of magic. Audiences will be whisked away at the stroke of midnight to the enchanting Land of Sweets where the Sugar Plum Fairy watches over whimsical snowflakes and pirouetting lollies.

As well as Queensland Ballet's acclaimed company dancers, the cast will also feature some younger faces. The dream of dancing on stage will come true for a few lucky aspiring dancers, who will perform as part of the Christmas party scene and the Mother Ginger scene, with the children performing as delightful gingernuts.

The dreamlike choreography and Tchaikovsky’s enduring score, performed live by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, will charm all ages. With its vivid themes ranging from classical waltzes to Arabian dances, this ballet will delight from the moment the curtain is raised.
