As the first production under the helm of newly appointed Artistic Director Lucinda Dunn OAM, the Sydney City Youth Ballet presents THE NUTCRACKER at The Concourse Chatswood from Tuesday 15 December to Sunday 20 December 2015.


With matinee and evening performances, THE NUTCRACKER will feature special guest performances from members of The Australian Ballet, Chengwu Guo and Ako Kondo!


Told in two acts of 45 minutes each, THE NUTCRACKER follows the story of the beautiful Clara who is given a Nutcracker doll by her Uncle for Christmas.


When Clara falls asleep on Christmas Eve she dreams her Nutcracker fights the Evil Rat King and his army of mice, before transforming into a handsome prince and whisking her away to the land of the beautiful sweets.


On the magical journey she encounters dancing snowflakes, chefs, cheeky clowns, Russian acrobats and the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy, before waking up on Christmas morning wondering if it was all a dream.


THE NUTCRACKER is the Sydney City Youth Ballet’s first production under the direction of Lucinda Dunn OAM. Lucinda was appointed as the company’s Artistic Director in January 2015 and is one of Australia’s longest serving and most celebrated prima ballerinas.


A fabulous way to celebrate the festive season, THE NUTCRACKER is perfect entertainment for the whole family!
