A free family activity will be hosted by the Birmingham Royal Ballet in the run up to the festive season.
The workshop will give visitors to the Bullring the chance to delve into the world of Sir Peter Wright’s Christmas ballet, The Nutcracker.
The event will feature the Children’s Ballet for those aged between three and ten. The interactive session features story guides, movement and a chance to try on some of the costumes.
A lecture demonstration introduction to the story of The Nutcracker will also take place and feature two of Birmingham Royal Ballet’s dancers performing the Sugar Plum and Prince pas de deux live, followed by a meet and greet.
Tom Rogers, Birmingham Royal Ballet’s creative content producer, said: “Sir Peter Wright’s The Nutcracker belongs to the city of Birmingham – it is important that we find ways to make sure it can be seen and enjoyed by the whole city.
“We are delighted to be partnering once again with Birmingham Hippodrome to bring this exciting free event to the Bullring.
“It will offer families the chance to meet our world-class dancers and staff and find out more about the story of The Nutcracker, which has now been seen by over one million people around the world and is a festive favourite in our hometown.”
The event will take place between 2pm and 5pm on 12th November on the ground floor of the Bullring
The Nutcracker returns to Birmingham Hippodrome from 19th November to 10th December. For more details visit www.birminghamhippodrome.com.
