This well-reviewed Nutcracker, choreographed by the incomparable Wayne Eagling, and covered by a BBC documentary on its making, opened tonight with a wonderful performance. The set was just amazing, especially the costumes - the Mouse King looked terrific! And the special effects including the hot air balloon worked so well.
We managed to get online £10 tickets up on the Balcony, which was great value - take your binoculars with so you can focus in on the detailed costumes and dancers.
Highly recommended - the Coliseum is just such a beautiful venue, perfect for this ballet.
