New Adventures announces 2020 tour dates for Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker! Music by Tchaikovsky
The tour opens 16 November 2020 at Theatre Royal Plymouth
Further tour dates for 2021 to be announced
The tour opens at Theatre Royal Plymouth on Monday 16 November 2020, and plays until Saturday 21 November before visiting The Lowry, Salford from Tuesday 24 November to Saturday 28 November and Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Dublin from Wednesday 2 December to Saturday 6 December; ahead of a Christmas Season at Sadler’s Wells, London from Tuesday 8 December 2020 to Sunday 24 January 2021.
The sweetest of all Matthew Bourne’s treats returns for the first time in nine years; it’s a Nutcracker! for all seasons. 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 delectable sets and costumes combine with Bourne’s dazzling choreography to create a fresh and charmingly irreverent interpretation of the classic. Expect a sprinkling of delicious new surprises in this reinvented production for 2020.
