Nutcracker- The Story Of Clara

Nutcracker- The Story Of Clara (2008)

Graeme Murphy's production of Nutcracker: The Story of Clara

In a stunning departure from tradition, Graeme Murphy transforms Nutcracker into a production which is uniquely Australian. The ballet is the story of Clara, once a famous Russian ballerina, who first came to Australia in the 1940s. It chronicles her turbulent, nomadic life; and is a moving tribute to all of the dedicated artists who forged the ballet tradition

' ...sheer theatrical magic.' The Sydney Morning Herald

'Tchaikovsky's score has at last received a production worthy of its passion and sparkle...The splendid result is shaped with grace and intelligence and loaded with drama, pathos and wit.' The Age

Vicki Attard: Clara, The Ballerina
Margaret Scott: Clara, The Elder
