Ballet Screening (130 mins)
An NCPA-Pathé Live (Paris) Presentation
Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, the story of a young girl’s journey to a magical land on Christmas Eve, is not only the composer’s most famous work but also one of the most famous ballets of all time. The Nutcracker is often performed around the Christmas season due to its content, and many families make it an annual tradition to attend a performance. From the Gift of the Nutcracker to the Attack of the Mouse King, from a Magical Land to Dancing Delights; figure out whether it is a dream or a reality. If you have never seen this ballet, or you need a refresher on the story, join us at the NCPA for this marvellous screening.
