Just back from the most wonderful final rehearsals for Ballet Theatre UK’s new production of The Nutcracker. I will bring you much more later, but for now I only have time to tell you how magical it’s going to be. Have a look at some of the costume designs.
The dancers have worked their legwarmers off over the last two weeks, picking up the steps incredibly quickly and coming together as a new Company. They are touring all over the UK and although some venues have now sold out, there are still some tickets at some theatres – so please don’t miss out !

The new choreography brings the story right up to date – there is a house but it’s not Victorian this time – and the costumes are more modern. The highlights are all there as the music swirls you along to Christmas….
If the Company can sparkle and dazzle and tell the story so vividly in the rehearsal room, with no props, sets, costumes or lighting, you can be sure you are in for a special treat which is why I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you about these few shows.
Stay tuned !
