Benjamin Millepied choreographs a new Nutcracker-themed advertisement for Baileys.
Far from the dark and twisted scenes of Black Swan, the Baileys ad sees Royal Ballet dancers give the classic fairytale a modern twist. In a winter wonderland bar, The Nutcracker Prince and The Mouse King fight for the attentions of the beautiful Clara, who in the end decides to ditch them both in favour of a festive night out with the girls. Quite right too.

The main parts in the ad are played by Steven McRae and Thiago Soares, both principal dancers with The Royal Ballet, and Iana Salenko, guest principal with The Royal Ballet.
