Last night, I went to see The Nutcracker performed by Vienna Festival Ballet at The Lights Theatre in Andover. It is safe to say that I really enjoyed it, and I think everyone else in that theatre did as well given the standing ovation the performers received!
It had always been a dream of mine to see The Nutcracker ballet live, and the show last night did not disappoint me. Next, I want to see Swan Lake!
The first half of The Nutcracker was funny, joyful and mesmerising, however, I did notice that some of the dancers were out of time with each other and the music, but they did catch up quickly.
The second half was absolutely beautiful, with dances from different cultures in Clara’s dream world.
All the dancers did a fantastic job, and it was truly breathtaking.
