More FM Presents the Ryman Healthcare season of The Nutcracker


Christmas 2018 is sure to be extra special, as the Royal New Zealand Ballet stages a national tour of the charming, festive tale The Nutcracker.

The story begins on Christmas Eve, as Tchaikovsky's enchanting music fills the air and Clara is given a nutcracker doll by her mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer.

As the clock strikes midnight, the drawing room is transformed. Skirmishes break out between the toy soldiers and motley crew of mice, but clever Clara saves the day, and the handsome Nutcracker Prince sweeps her away to the Marzipan Castle – for the spectacular dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, one of ballet’s most cherished showpieces.
