THE Royal Ballet’s The Nutcracker makes a welcome return to Theatr Mwldan’s big screen and this year the Cardigan venue will be showing this glittering Christmas production on both December 19 and 27.

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.

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.

Tickets for Royal Opera House screenings are £16 (£15) and are available now from Theatr Mwldan’s box office on 01239 621200, online at or via the Mwldan app.

The screening on Wednesday, December 19 is at 7.15pm and on Thursday, December 27 at 5.30pm.
