The Lowry, Salford, to see Matthew Bourne’s new production of ‘The Nutcracker!’ before it transfers to Sadler’s Wells.
The sweetest of all Matthew Bourne’s Christmas treats. It’s a Nutcracker like no other, adored by critics and audiences alike. With family-sized helpings of Bourne’s trademark wit, pathos and magical fantasy, Nutcracker follows Clara’s bittersweet journey from a darkly comic Christmas Eve at Dr. Dross’ Orphanage, through a shimmering ice-skating winter wonderland to the sumptuous candy kingdom of Sweetieland, influenced by the lavish Hollywood musicals of the 1930s.
Tchaikovsky’s glorious score and Anthony Ward’s delectable sets and costumes combine with Bourne’s dazzling choreography to create a fresh and charmingly irreverent interpretation of the traditional Christmas favourite. Expect a sprinkling of delicious new surprises in the reinvented production for 2020.

We have now sold all the tickets for Nutcracker and have started a waiting list. If anyone wishes to join that list please contact Moira. Tickets, including coach trip, are £49 each.
