Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker
‘A mightily impressive achievement’
– Brass Band World
Brass instruments are a vital part of the festive fabric of Christmas, and Tchaikovsky’s iconic ballet The Nutcracker is made even more joyful with the brassy brilliance of Septura.
Narrated by pre-eminent actor Derek Jacobi, The Nutcracker is set on Christmas Eve, with music both rapturous and fantastical. It tells the story of how young Clara’s favourite present, a nutcracker shaped like a little man, turns into a handsome prince at midnight.
