The sweetest of all Matthew Bourne’s productions Nutcracker! With 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.
From the Blackmore Vale area, we take you directly to the Mayflower Theatre for your matinee performance of Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker!
With family sized helpings of Bourne’s trademark wit and magical fantasy, this 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 1930’s.
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 2021.
The trip includes Afternoon Tea at the historic Grade II listed Mayflower Theatre. Afternoon Tea includes a selection of finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, a selection of traditional treats and a choice of tea or coffee.
The Mayflower Theatre has recently received a £7.5 million makeover with a major refurbishment that has been carried out on the 90-year-old venue. The venue has been completely repainted and given a new red and gold colour scheme. All the seats in the stall and circle have been removed and replaced with 1,659 brand-new wider seats, while the seats in the balcony have been reupholstered.
