    The Nutcracker

     

    The Nutcracker has long been one of the most delightful ways to discover the enchantment of ballet – and makes for a delicious seasonal treat for all the family.

    Choreography: Peter Wright

    After: Lev Ivanov

    Music: Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky

    Tchaikovsky’s much-loved music is matched to a magical adventure on Christmas Eve for Clara and her Nutcracker doll. Their journey to the Land of Sweets brings with it some of the most familiar of all ballet moments, such as the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Waltz of the Flowers. Peter Wright’s production for The Royal Ballet keeps true to the spirit of this Russian ballet classic, with period details and dancing snowflakes.

    The many solo roles and ensembles put the world-class skills of the Company to the fore in this Christmas classic.

    Ticket price includes a festive glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.

  • Lumiere: the beautiful light

    • Saturday, 10 November 2018 - Saturday, 5 January 2019 at 10:00 - 17:00
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free

    Irresistible hand-crafted lighting and illuminated artworks make a wonderful festive statement this season. We explore all facets of lighting where sculpture, colour and form meet.

    Hannah_Nunn_Lamps_153Our intimate Balcony Gallery will be full to the rafters with beautiful pieces which can easily fit into home environments. We are careful to note the power of light as a medium in its own right, where light and shade create shadows and the colour and textures of shadow shifting with each piece create physically powerful works that take on the appearance of sculptural forms in space.

    Visitors are encouraged to move freely around the space to take the lighting pieces in from all angles.

    Presenting pieces by: Clio Anastasiou, Nichola Bendall - Words Ink, Dobby and Rose, Liv Cornall, Adele Goulty, Denis di Luca, Hannah Nunn, Liz Scrine, Surrey Woodsmiths and Meryl Till.
