25 days of Ballet Magic Welcome to our Advent Calendar!



13th December 2016

Did You Know? In Nutcracker, the hot air balloon at the end of Act I is flown by a team of crew members from the wings. Two people use a winch to lift and lower the basket and the balloon itself is flown from stage right. They also have a spotter on hand to oversee and keep a look out of any problems!
