Every time you see the Royal Ballet perform The Nutcracker you have cause to be grateful to Sir Peter Wright. His production is a magical, sumptuous staging alive with fantasy and tingling with the tenderness of young romance. It may be childhood’s favourite ballet but as realised by Wright this is a Nutcracker to touch the adult heart.

Peter Wright certainly doesn't look 80. This Nutcracker ended with a birthday cake and singing for its producer, a key figure at both Royal Ballet companies. In a happy end to the performance, Wright came on stage to applaud the dancers and to blow out his candles. It was an affectionate end to an evening of prettiness and sparkle.
