Looking for the perfect way to begin your Christmas season? How about a night at the theatre for The Nutcracker Ballet.
Presented by The Cork City Ballet Company and showing at the Cork Opera House from November 19 - 21, it promises to be a great show. We were delighted to host the launch event here at Hayfield Manor, and it was exciting just to see the fabulous costumes that the cast in attendance were wearing - I can't wait to see the final set and production.
The show is directed by Alan Foley, and Prima Ballerina Chika Temma will star in the role of Sugar Plum Fairy.
What better images of Christmas can you conjure up than a big beautifully decorated tree on stage, and being taken through the Land of Sweets and the Land of Snow by the Sugar Plum Fairy and a selection of toys come to life! I'll be there, you should make sure you are too.
