What’s on Manchester: Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker at the Lowry Theatre Manchester

Tuesday 20th March 2012 – to Saturday 24th March 2012

Tickets from £19.00

One of the most popular dance productions ever staged in the UK, Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker! returns to The Lowry to celebrate its 20th anniversary for one week only. This delicious theatrical feast has family-sized helpings of Matthew Bourne’s trademark wit, pathos and magical fantasy. Nutcracker! follows Clara’s bittersweet journey from a hilariously bleak Christmas Eve at Dr. Dross’ Orphanage, through a shimmering, ice-skating winter wonderland to the scrumptious candy kingdom of Sweetieland.

Tchaikovsky’s glorious score and Anthony Ward’s unforgettable sets and costumes combine with sizzling choreography to create a fresh and charmingly irreverent interpretation of the traditional favourite. Hailed by The Observer as “the undisputed king of dance theatre”, Matthew Bourne’s company New Adventures has produced some of the most successful dance productions of the last two decades including Swan Lake, Edward Scissorhands and last year’s sell-out hit, Cinderella.
