Description Clara, a former star of the ballet Russes, has settled in Australia. On Christmas Eve, nearing the end of her life, she relives her past on stage. Graeme Murphy's acclaimed reimagining of The Nutcracker masterfully weaves together the enchantment and fantasy of the beloved classic with emotional depth and a modern perspective.
