The performance was beautiful, professional dancers from the National Ballet of China, dancing gracefully with great precision along with beautiful costumes, stage props, engaging the audience with an interesting twist of ‘The Nutcracker’ story with a Chinese New Year element, creating a festive mood on stage.

The greatest highlight was when little children who were auditioned locally for this performance came out from a giant INGOT in beautiful golden costumes.

The children are really excited to be given the opportunity to perform on the big stage with the professionals – perhaps once in a life time for some of them!  It also marks the first celebration of The National Ballet of CHINA 60th Anniversary right here in Singapore.
