An exciting new tour of Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker! is on its way to Bradford in 2021, as well as 17 other venues. It’s a treat for all dance lovers as it’s the first tour coming to the UK in nine years!
Audiences are promised family-sized helpings of Bourne’s trademark wit, pathos and magical fantasy. Nutcracker! tells the story of Clara’s bittersweet journey from a darkly comic Christmas Eve at Dr. Dross’ Orphanage, through a shimmering, ice-skating winter wonderland.
Played to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score, the show is influenced by lavish Hollywood musicals of the 1930s. Expect delectable sets and costumes designed by Anthony Ward truly bringing the choreography of Matthew Bourne to life in the most spectacular way.
Nutcracker! comes to Bradford Alhambra from 2nd to 6th March 2021. For more information, visit the Bradford Theatres website.
