What would the festive season be without the magical, uplifting tale of The Nutcracker Prince! The beautiful dancers of CAPE TOWN CITY BALLET present this extraordinary Christmas narrative of Clara, her brother Fritz, the handsome Nutcracker Prince, and the Mouse King.

Celebrating the 130th anniversary of the premiere of this charming ballet story, set on Christmas Eve at a celebratory gathering of family, friends & children, an enigmatic and enchanting story unfolds.

The children receive their special gifts, and Clara is beguiled by her very unusual nutcracker doll. She falls asleep holding her new friend, and dreams that she saves the doll's life in a "fierce" battle against The Mouse King.

Just like that.... the doll magically transforms into a handsome prince, who whisks Clara away to the Kingdom of the Sweets through the Land of Snow.

The enigmatic Sugar Plum Fairy welcomes Clara & the Prince to her land as special guests and treats them to a spectacular display of the world's most wonderful sweetie delicacies.

Audiences will be treated to a sparkling & captivating journey of magic and wonderment and all the feel-good moments of the festive season!
