Hong Kong Sinfonietta will provide live accompaniment to Hong Kong Ballet’s select performances of The Nutcracker under the baton of Fayçal Karoui.
Snow much fun! This December, Septime Webre’s heartwarming The Nutcracker returns to bring festive cheer in a wonderous celebration of early 20th century Hong Kong’s history, characters and natural beauty. This much-anticipated annual extravaganza begins at a lively Christmas Eve party in a gilded mansion where young Clara receives a very unique Nutcracker as a gift.
With scores of glittering costumes and extraordinary sets, this wondrous world finds Clara and her brother Fritz on a magical coming-of-age adventure with the Nutcracker Prince, battling the evil Rat King and his army, meeting a host of lively characters and encountering a kaleidoscope of Hong Kong’s colourful peacocks, lush cockatoos, energetic racing jockeys, and blossoming bauhinias. You’ll be enchanted by the splendour and spectacle of this endearing Hong Kong classic as you celebrate the joy of the holidays with your loved ones!
