It was a wonderful evening of entertainment at The Grove Theatre Dunstable England; when Marilyn and myself attended The Russian State Ballet Academy of Perm performance of ‘The Nutcracker’ recently.
The Christmas story is based on “The Nutcracker and The King of Mice” written by E.T.A. Hoffmann. It tells the story of Marie, a rather sad little girl, whose godfather Drosselmeier gives her a nutcracker as a present on Christmas Eve. It turns into a prince who invites her on a journey into the Sugar Plum Fairy’s Land of Sweets. Marie celebrates with a sumptuous party together with her godfather and the nutcracker prince.
