Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker!
Release date: Nov. 15, 2022
Countries available: International
The sweetest of all Matthew Bourne’s treats comes to cinemas for the first time. Celebrating its 30th Anniversary, this ‘witty, wonderful, rip-roaring spectacular’ (★★★★★ Daily Telegraph) is a Nutcracker! for all seasons and ‘the sweet treat we all deserve.’ (★★★★★ Evening Standard). With family-sized helpings of Bourne’s trademark wit, pathos and magical fantasy, Nutcracker! follows Clara’s bittersweet journey from a darkly comic Christmas Eve at Dr. Dross’ Orphanage, through a shimmering, ice-skating winter wonderland to the scrumptious candy kingdom of Sweetieland, influenced by the lavish Hollywood musicals of the 1930s. Tchaikovsky’s glorious score and Anthony Ward’s newly-refreshed delectable sets and costumes combine with Bourne’s dazzling choreography to create a fresh and charmingly irreverent interpretation of the classic production.
