Dance Woking and a few of our partners were lucky enough to go and see Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker at The New Victoria Theatre when it visited town last week.
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.
With a reimagined set, the bright production was so inspiring to see and it was wonderful to see a few of the artists that joined us on our Doorstep Duet tour last August perform on stage once again!
It was a wonderful treat for a Tuesday night and a privilege to see the last stop of the nationwide tour!
