As part of the Ballet in Cinema program, AFI Silver Theatre presents a film screening of a performance of the beloved holiday ballet The Nutcracker
, filmed recently in London at the Royal Opera House. A mysterious magician gives an enchanted gift to a young girl on Christmas, and that night she embarks on an amazing dream journey. After an epic battle, a guiding angel leads the girl and her Nutcracker Prince through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets. This now-classic Royal Ballet production recreates the world of the 19th century onstage, with a Christmas tree that magically grows and toy soldiers that come to life! Seeing The Royal Ballet perform this seasonal gem is an opportunity not to be missed; as one of the foremost ballet companies of the 20th century, it continues to be one of the world's most famous ballet companies today.
