Our neighbour, The Sydney City Youth Ballet (part of the Tanya Pearson Classical Coaching Academy located at 75 Chandos St. St Leonards) is staging the wonderful Christmas favourite, THE NUTCRACKER from Tuesday 16 December to Sunday 21 December 2014 at the Glen Street Theatre, Belrose.

Perfect Christmas entertainment for the whole family, this magical and enchanting ballet will delight all. With matinee and evening performances, THE NUTCRACKER will feature special guests The Australian Ballet’s Kevin Jackson and Amanda McGuigan, (who is also a former student of Mrs Pearson) at select performances.

THE NUTCRACKER follows the story of the beautiful Clara who is given a Nutcracker doll by her Uncle for Christmas. When she falls asleep on Christmas Eve she dreams her Nutcracker has to fight the Evil Rat King and his army of mice, before transforming into a handsome prince and whisking her away to the land of the beautiful sweets.

On the magical journey Clara encounters dancing snowflakes, chefs, cheeky clowns, Russian acrobats and the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy, before waking up on Christmas morning wondering if it was all a dream.

THE NUTCRACKER will be presented under the direction of Mrs Tanya Pearson OAM and Lucinda Dunn OAM, who will step into the role as Artistic Director of the Tanya Pearson Classical Coaching Academy and the Sydney City Youth Ballet in January 2015. 

Come and be enchanted by this magical Christmas Tale.
