Peter Wright's Nutcracker will be broadcast live from the Royal Opera House to cinemas on Thursday, December 12. In Canada screenings will be time delayed until 7:30 p.m. local time, and there will be an additional screening on Sunday, December 22, at 12:55 p.m. In the United States the ballet will be shown on Tuesday, December 17, at 7:00 p.m. local time. Darcey Bussell will host the broadcast.

 

As of today, the performance is to feature Laura Morera as the Sugarplum Fairy, Federico Bonelli as her Cavalier, Francesca Hayward as Clara, Alexander Campbell as the Nutcracker and Gary Avis as Drosselmeyer. The page linked below includes a search box for locating screenings.

The Royal Ballet has posted PDF-format cast sheets in multiple languages, albeit very few of the characters' performers are identified.

Some of the additional names I caught from the credits:

Columbine: Elizabeth Harrod

Harlequin: Fernando Montaño

Vivandière: Akane Takada

Soldier: Kenta Kura

Spanish dance: Christina Arestis, Johannes Stepanek

Arabian dance: Melissa Hamilton

I'm so glad to see Francesca Hayward being given the role of Clara and this world-wide exposure. She is a lovely dancer, lovely lines, lovely quality!

Although this video interview actually says very little about "the business of ballet," Kevin O'Hare suggests that in the UK, at least, The Nutcracker was the #1 film of the day.
