Hong Kong Sinfonietta will provide live accompaniment to Hong Kong Ballet’s select performances of The Nutcracker under the baton of Vivian Ip.
‘Tis the season of whirling white snowflakes, visions of dancing sugar plums, waltzing bauhinia flowers and endless glittering tutus! Septime Webre’s The Nutcracker returns to bring festive cheer this December in a fantastical celebration of Hong Kong in the early 20th century, as the much-anticipated annual festive extravaganza! The Christmas Eve adventure begins at a lively party in an opulent gilded mansion where young Clara receives a special Nutcracker as a gift.
With scores of lavish costumes and an extraordinary setting, this wondrous world finds Clara and the Nutcracker on a magical journey, battling the evil Rat King’s army, travelling through a majestic bamboo forest covered in snow, encountering lively, memorable characters and the wondrous beauty of local flora and fauna, history and traditions. Experience the splendour and spectacle of this endearing annual Hong Kong classic celebrating the joy of the holidays with your loved ones!
