Christmas means many things: chaos in the shops, carols invading your brain, and a focus on all things red and green. In Brisbane, it also usually means Queensland Ballet's final production for the season, with The Nutcracker brightening up the QPAC stage every year.

As we all know, 2020 is a more than a bit different to a normal year. So, after initially cancelling its performance of The Nutcracker for the year, Queensland Ballet's is presenting a new spin on the beloved favourite now that life is starting to return to normal. Called Best of The Nutcracker, it's a one-hour highlights-driven performance, rather than the full show.

Whether you've experienced the Tchaikovsky-scored show about sentient toys, dancing snowflakes and the Sugar Plum Fairy before, or you're checking it out for the first time, you're certain to get swept up in the production's magic — even in its abridged format.

Queensland Ballet's Best of The Nutcracker dances across the Concert Hall stage at 7.30pm on Friday, December 4, and again 1t 1pm, 4pm and 7.30pm on Saturday, December 5.
