Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland burst onto the stage in 2011 in an explosion of colour, stage magic and inventive, sophisticated choreography, with Joby Talbot’s sweeping score and Bob Crowley’s wildly imaginative, eye-popping designs, drawing on everything from puppetry to projections to make Wonderland wonderfully real. The delicious result shows The Royal Ballet at its best, bringing together world-class dance with enchanting family entertainment. Running time approximately 170 minutes including two intervals. Book from 2pm,  Friday, September 8.

The Nutcracker (2017),  Tuesday December 5 at 7:15pm
Peter Wright’s nigh-on definitive production for the Royal Ballet ranks as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker. With its festive period setting, dancing snowflakes and enchanting stage magic, Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet has become the perfect Christmas entertainment, with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognisable of all ballet scores. Loosely based on the story by ETA Hoffmann, the ballet opens with a lively Christmas party, its Victorian setting captured in opulent detail by Julia Trevelyan Oman’s designs. Wright’s choreography ingeniously incorporates surviving fragments of the ballet’s original material, including the sublime pas de deux for the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince. But in emphasising the relationship between Clara and the Nutcracker Prince, the production also gains a touching subtext of first love. Conductor and cast to be confirmed.

Kino member free tickets cannot be used for Live, NT, RSC, opera, ballet or special events.
