The Nutcracker on Ice

The Nutcracker Ballet is one of Tchaikovsky’s best loved scores and is a favourite with children around the word, but the new production coming to the Festival Theatre has one added surprise – it’s on ice.

The Imperial Ice Stars of St Petersburg are bringing it to Adelaide for a short season (19-21 July, 2012) in the Adelaide Festival Theatre.The choreographer is Maria Orlova and Ewart Shaw asks her if she’d begun as a ballet dancer or had in fact begun her career on ice.

Broadcast 7 July 2012.
