English National Ballet is delighted to present an enchanting pre-Christmas extravaganza with star dancers and children from Chelsea Ballet Schools performing highlights from The Nutcracker.

Nutcracker Suities

Friday 25 November 2011

Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre

Tickets £100 adults/ £50 children (5 to 16 years)

Book online at English National Ballet’s website, call 020 7581 1245 or email support@ballet.org.uk.

Nutcracker Suities will feature children of Chelsea Ballet Schools in the Dance of the Snowflakes led by English National Ballet Principal Begoña Cao. English National Ballet stars Daria Klimentová and Vadim Muntagirov will dance the grand pas de deux from Act II while other dancers form the Company will perform the Spanish, Chinese and Russian dances. Choreographer Christine Sundt has created the children’s dances to suit their abilities, taking inspiration from Wayne Eagling’s production of The Nutcracker which premiered last year and can be seen again at the London Coliseum from 8 – 30 December. 

There will be a champagne and canapé reception prior to the performance with entertainment for the children and Christmas trees decked with mystery prizes. After the performance a small number of exclusive lots will be auctioned including the chance for a child to appear with English National Ballet in The Nutcracker at the London Coliseum

Sally Muckley, Development Director of English National Ballet, saidThroughout the year, we host a series of fundraising events offering a wonderful opportunity for ballet lovers to get closer to the Company whilst at the same time supporting our work. English National Ballet is incredibly grateful to long time supporter and founder of Chelsea Ballet Schools Mrs Dorothy Ind who, along with co-chair Rosemary Said and their fellow committee members have made this very special event possible.“
