The Vienna Festival Ballet, which was formed in 1980, regularly tours the UK under artistic director Peter Mallek and provides the opportunity to see the art and skills of the ballet at close quarters.
The enchanting tale of The Nutcracker is one of the best-loved ballets and centres around Clara and her nutcracker doll, which magically transforms into a princely soldier. Their adventures see the Prince and Clara combat the Mouse King and join the Sugar Plum Fairy for a wonderful trip to a Kingdom made entirely of sweets.
