When the clock strikes midnight, magical things start to happen…

Ballet Ireland is delighted to present Nutcracker Sweeties, a brand new production of one of the world’s favourite ballets, to audiences this autumn. Choreographed by Morgann Runacre-Temple, this exciting new Irish presentation of the festive classic performed by a cast of world-class dancers will appeal to audiences of all ages with its fairy-tale magic: It’s Christmas Eve. Ciara and Fionn Sheridan are on a shopping expedition to a famous department store in Dublin. Once inside, they wander off fascinated by all the Christmas toys and displays, only to find themselves behind the scenes.

The clock strikes midnight and magical things start to happen…
