Bus Trip to Queensland Ballet’s production of “The Nutcracker”

Matinée performance on Sunday 27 November 2016 at the Canberra Theatre Centre

NutcrackerIn November, Ben Stevenson’s much-loved production of The Nutcracker which has become a seasonal tradition in Brisbane, is travelling to Canberra. Gorgeous sets and costumes and stunning dance combine with Tchaikovsky’s evocative music to make The Nutcracker the perfect festive ballet.

After the success of the bus trip to the Tom Roberts Exhibition, we are giving you the unique opportunity to attend the Sunday 27 November matinée performance at the Canberra Theatre Centre.

This ballet was produced under the Artistic Direction of Li Cunxin (Mao’s Last Dancer) who says “I’ve loved The Nutcracker since I danced in Houston Ballet’s 1979 production. The ballet is a magical fantasy which brings everyone together for a special time of shared enjoyment. The Nutcracker is our Christmas gift to Queenslanders, and I am delighted that our annual season has become a festive tradition in Brisbane. The talented creative team, and our wonderful dancers, have given us a truly memorable “Nutcracker.”

So don’t miss out on this exciting chance to see this much loved ballet. Numbers are limited so put your name on the list now by contacting Penny Bonnell after 4 July – telephone 4471 5691, email pbonnell@bigpond.com. Cost will be approx. $110 for ticket and return travel by bus (TBC).

Full details will be confirmed well before this event. It is planned to hold two workshop sessions prior to this event to explore the history of the ballet and listen to the music.
