The Hong Kong Ballet Brings Back The Enchanting Christmas Favourite ‘The Nutcracker’
Why We Recommend it
Magical, festive and accompanied live by the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, this production by the Hong Kong Ballet puts a fresh spin on the all-time favourite Christmas ballet, ‘The Nutcracker’.
The Nutcracker tells the story of Clara and Fritz, two children who find themselves stuck in a magical dollhouse on Christmas Eve, where they embark on an adventure to help the heroic Nutcracker defeat the evil Rat King and reunite with his true love, a ballerina.
Acclaimed Australian choreographer Terence Kohler created this production specially for the Hong Kong Ballet, combining a refreshing visual style with the elegance and charm of the original classic. Tchaikovsky’s timeless music will be performed live by the Hong Kong Sinfonietta.
The Hong Kong Ballet has staged the beloved Christmas ballet for six consecutive years. This year, there will be a special treat for the audience. Local actress Annie Liu will make cameo appearances on 14 December at 7:30pm and 15 December at 2:30pm in a role tailored for her.
