Dreams, fantasy and reality come together in this magical show

Puppets and jazz. We’ve brought them together to tell you the fascinating story of The Nutcracker.

This new present-day version takes a plural, inclusive view of the classic.

To find the Karakatuk, the hardest nut in the world: that’s the challenge faced by Daniela and her mother, Mrs Drossel, in their bid to rescue Piri from the spell the Queen of the Mice has cast on him. The brave, determined Daniela finishes up turning into a wooden nutcracker, but she never stops being herself, or being who she wants to be. It will be no easy task.

Dreams, fantasy and reality come together in this magical show, seen at close quarters, in which music from a jazz band blends with the delicate art of puppetry.

Recommended for ages 5 and up
