Peter Darrell's The Nutcracker

Lovingly recreated for audiences, Scottish Ballet proudly presents Peter Darrell’s The Nutcracker, touring winter 2014/15.

Crafted for Scotland by the company’s founding Artistic Director, a famous story-teller and an incredible dance-maker, this Nutcracker is full of magical memories. And now audiences can share this dream-making production with families and friends once more, over 40 years since it first premiered.

Peter Darrell’s magical world of The Nutcracker has been reimagined by Olivier Award winning designer Lez Brotherston, adding sumptuous layers of plush Victoriana and traditional festive fare to the original 1973 production.

The Scottish Ballet Orchestra accompanies live, performing the world famous Tchaikovsky score.

Running time: Approximately 2hrs with one 20min interval.
