THE KINGDOM OF THE SWEETS



IN THE KINGDOM OF THE SWEETS

Nigel Bates Tuesday 11 December 2018

Due to illness Ann Clements has unfortunately had to cancel her publicised talk 'In the Bleak Midwinter'. We wish her well and Nigel Bates who has a long association with Covent Garden, has stepped into the breach. We are sure members will enjoy his lecture.

 

The Nutcracker has delighted audiences at Christmas for many decades yet it was deemed a failure at its first performances.  We take a close look at how this well-loved ballet now takes its rightful place on stage and how the music of Tchaikovsky along with story-telling, design and dance all come together to make the most magical escape for young and old alike.
