Enchanting Christmas tales for the whole family, told through music, narration and animation.
On Christmas Eve, Clara receives a gift of the most beautiful toy, a nutcracker. Falling asleep with the toy in her arms, she dreams of a world of Princes, Sugar Plum Fairies and an evil King Rat. Experience Tchaikovsky’s beloved music from The Nutcracker, coupled with hand-drawn illustrations.
Christmas also wouldn’t be complete without a screening of the charming Raymond Briggs classic, The Snowman. When James builds a snowman in the garden, little does he know an exciting adventure is about to begin…
Hear the iconic Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Waltz of the Flowers and soundtrack to The Snowman performed by the Orchestra of Opera North, plus a tender performance of ‘Walking in the Air’ sung live!
