Ballet Ireland’s The Nutcracker
at The Gaiety Theatre all this week
Let the Magic of Christmas Begin!
Ballet Ireland is delighted to return with The Nutcracker, one of the world’s favourite ballets, to stages throughout Ireland this season. This timeless classic, complete with glittering costumes and Tchaikovsky’s beloved & sumptuous score, takes audiences on a wondrous adventure full of quintessential Christmas magic.
It’s Christmas Eve. A marvellous party is taking place where the mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer brings gifts for all the children. When midnight strikes, very strange things start to happen … The Christmas tree grows to incredible heights… Clara’s magical Christmas gift, her Nutcracker, leads them into a fairy-tale world…
With her heroic Nutcracker at her side, Clara defeats the Mouse King and his army of mice, and they journey to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets together.
The Kingdom of Sweets
And you too can visit the Kingdom of Sweets for a post-theatre dessert at Whitefriar Grill. Even better still have a two course early bird pre-theatre and then return for a dessert*?
(prices vary dependent on day, Monday to Wednesday its only 5 euro for a dessert once you’ve had the two course early bird, Thursday to Sunday its a la carte dessert prices.)
