About Monica Loughman Ballet


Monica Loughman’s hugely popular version of The Nutcracker sold out every venue of its 2011 tour and now she is bringing the production to the fabulous Convention Centre Dublin for on the weekend before Christmas!

The Irish Times raved about this production saying it “exemplified athleticism, artistry, the ability to transcend the everyday” and the President of Ireland wrote to her afterwards saying that, “The future of ballet in Ireland depends on the passion and innovation of ambassadors like you”.

This event was the focus of RTE’s hit series Ballet Chancers.  Some of the modern dance and hip-hop artists that took part in that series will return to perform in this year's Nutcracker bringing acrobatics and athleticism to this ballet.  The total cast is more than fifty dancers including the fabulous Ivan Mikhalev and Inessa Bikbulatova – the Russian stars who so thrilled audiences across Ireland last year.

Monica Loughman’s The Nutcracker is set to become Dublin’s favourite Christmas event.  It is a magical Christmas story about a little girl called Clara who falls asleep after the Christmas party and dreams that one of her toys – the handsome Nutcracker Prince – comes to life and takes her off to the land of sweets.  On their journey they meet the sugar plum fairy, battle with mouse armies and dance with performers from all over the world.

You are warmly invited to bring your whole family, from the youngest to the oldest, to be swept up in Tchaikovsky's incredible score, dazzled by the artistry of Russia’s finest principal ballet dancers and enchanted by this tale of Clara’s dream and adventures.
