THE NUTCRACKER – LIVE FROM THE ROYAL OPERA HOUSE
CELEBRATE PETER WRIGHTS 90TH BIRTHDAY
THURSDAY 8TH DECEMBER, 2016
Live directly from London’s Royal Opera House is The Nutcracker, a truly mesmerising classical ballet loved by audiences of all ages. Showing exclusively at the Eden Cinemas on the 8th December at 20:15, Tchaikovsky’s overture transforms this magical tale into the most enchanting of performances. Choreographed by Peter Wright, the many charming elements of this ballet are brought to life, continuing to make The Nutcracker one of the most popular ballets of all times. Set designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman continue to light up the stage, adding that magical Christmas touch in the most spectacular of ways. This year’s production will also be in celebration of Peter Wright’s 90th birthday, ensuring the performance will be even more spectacular than ever.
The Nutcracker unfolds over two glorious acts. Act 1 takes place on Christmas Eve where Drosselmeyer gives young Clara a nutcracker doll, leading to an array of events, including a magically growing Christmas tree, a midnight battle of toy soldiers and a magical snowstorm. As the ballet moves on to Act II, audiences are transported to the Kingdom of Sweets, were the Sugar Plum Fairy is introduced in her glittering court, in a series of dazzling dances.
Eden Cinemas continues to enhance the experience of this charming ballet through dimmed theatre lighting and amplified sound, giving audiences that real feel of the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. The Nutcracker will be shown on Malta’s largest screen in Eden Cinemas’ newly reopened Premium Theatre boasting new luxurious seats. The production will guarantee to be a most magnificent performance, with each movement beautifully captured. Sure to be a marvellous evening, audiences pay just a fraction of that charged overseas for theatre tickets.
