Christmas time has its traditional entertainments, parties, pantomimes, carol concerts, and ballet isn't left out. There's one ballet that captures the magic of Christmas itself with presents for children, partying and a winter wonderland conjured by magic with a land of sweets, dolls and tree decorations that come alive for one lucky little girl. It’s The Nutcracker, and it’s being screened at Chepstow’s Drill Hall on Sunday 15th December at 3pm, captured on stage at the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow.

The ballet created in Russia in the 1890s is set on Christmas Eve, when the mysterious Drosselmeyer brings a Nutcracker doll as a gift for his god-daughter Marie. At midnight, the magic begins and the Nutcracker comes to life and finds himself in a battle against the Mouse King, determined to save Marie from the Mouse King's clutches.

This holiday classic, takes audiences on a magical journey through a world of enchantment. In this timeless story accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s memorable and much-loved music, rising star soloist of the Bolshoi Ballet, Margarita Shrainer is the perfect heroine for all young girls and ballet fans for whom this is an ideal Christmas treat. Captivating for audiences of all ages, see this screening of the The Nutcracker at the Drill Hall Chepstow, on a day and at a time that is great for young ballet fans too on a Sunday afternoon just over a week before Christmas.
