Queen Margarethe does "Nutcracker"

3 posts in this topic

Well, Her Majesty is not going to dance the Sugar Plum Fairy. But it is widely known that she is very artistic and a great fan of the ballet.

The other day there was an interview with H.M. on the television where she was speaking about her new project. The RDB is going to stage an entirely new production of Nutcracker and H.M. has been commissioned to design both the sets and the costumes. This is not her first venture into ballet design.

Thanks, Pamela. So the RDB is finally going to replace that wacko Ratmansky version, is it? Hallelujah! I love the queen's designs - for both RDB (the 1990s Folk Tale...minus the silly trolls) and the Tivoli Theater.

I think this is for Tivoli rather than for the RDB, who have just this season staged Balanchine's Nutcracker (replacing Kenneth Greve's version - the Ratmansky one is long gone, Natalia!)
