This Christmas, Septime Webre’s larger-than-life world premiere of The Nutcracker, set in the early 20th century Hong Kong, follows young Clara on a fantasy adventure when one of her Christmas presents, a magical Nutcracker, comes to life. A glorious feast for the eyes and ears, this nostalgic extravaganza features a riveting fusion of local historical characters, charming wildlife and shared Hong Kong traditions, set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved iconic score with Gabriela Tylesova’s luxuriously detailed sets and costumes. Don’t miss the hypnotic Waltz of the Bauhinia Flowers, the whimsical Mother Dim Sum and her dancing Dim Sum Clowns or the lively Cheung Chau Bun Festival!
