Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker! comes to Newcastle Theatre Royal
Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker!
Newcastle Theatre Royal
Tuesday 5 – Saturday 9 April 2022
Audience favourite New Adventures make a triumphant return to Newcastle Theatre Royal with the sweetest of treats as Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker! takes to the stage for one week only.
With family-sized helpings of Bourne’s trademark wit and magical fantasy, Nutcracker! follows Clara’s journey through a shimmering, ice skating wonderland to the scrumptious candy kingdom of Sweetieland, influenced by the lavish Hollywood musicals of the 1930’s.
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 classic.
New Adventures are firm favourites with Newcastle Theatre Royal audiences and in recent years have played to packed out houses with stunning productions of The Red Shoes, Cinderella and Swan Lake.
