The Nutcracker will be shown there.

A performance of classic Christmas ballet The Nutcracker will be streamed live from the Royal Opera House to Bluewater Cinema.

The screening will be taking place on December 27 at 2pm.

The festive favourite features Tchaikovsky’s score, a Christmas tree that magically grows, and the famous dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, performed by Royal Ballet principal Lauren Cuthbertson.

General manager at Showcase, Mark Barlow, said: “Last year’s Christmas performance of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by The Royal Ballet was so popular we jumped at the chance to bring them back to our screens.

“The Nutcracker is a Christmas classic that cannot fail to get you into the festive spirit so we’re delighted to be offering two screenings of the Royal Opera House performance.”

Tickets are £17.50 or £12.50 for children and they are available from the cinema box office or from
