Queensland Ballet is thrilled to announce that Artistic Director, Li Cunxin, will return to the stage this Christmas, for one very special performance of The Nutcracker. Li will take to the stage in the role of Drosselmeyer 18 years after retiring from the stage and will be joined by other special guests, including his wife Mary Li. The last time Li and Mary performed on the stage together was in 1991 at Houston Ballet in Ben Stevenson’s The Nutcracker.
This special performance is proudly supported by Queensland Ballet’s Principal Partner, Suncorp, and will also feature the winner of the Suncorp Wish Upon a Ballet Star competition. This annual competition gives one lucky Queensland child the chance of a walk on role in The Nutcracker and this year the lucky winner will share the stage with Li.
All proceeds will be directed to Queensland Ballet’s regional engagement, community initiatives and Academy programs.
This performance will be to recorded music.
