Brecon Festival Ballet is a new, not-for-profit company that has been formed to present a brand-new production of The Nutcracker at Theatr Brycheiniog for Christmas 2019. Not only will this be the first time a professional version of this iconic ballet has been produced in Wales, it will also be the first time that Theatr Brycheiniog has ever presented a full-length ballet with a live orchestra!
The Nutcracker is probably the world’s most popular ballet – performed to packed houses all over the globe each Christmas. The ballet is a winning combination of Tchaikovsky’s beautiful music featuring famous and very familiar tunes, and a magical story involving a Christmas party, a journey through the Land of Snow and a feast of iconic dances in the Kingdom of Sweets, ruled over by the Sugar Plum Fairy.
The ballet will be created by Artistic Director Katy Sinnadurai, a ballet dancer and choreographer based in Brecon. All principal roles will be performed by professional ballet dancers, with children’s and character roles taken by local dance students and actors. The Snowflakes chorus will be sung by a local choir, and the production will be accompanied by the Welsh Chamber Orchestra.
This is an extremely ambitious project, so we are applying for grants and launching a fund-raising campaign to help us cover the costs of this exciting production… Brecon’s very own Christmas ballet.
