Birmingham Royal Ballet cancels its production of ‘The Nutcracker’ at the Royal Albert Hall

Birmingham Royal Ballet has cancelled its forthcoming production of The Nutcracker at the Royal Albert Hall due to government restrictions of indoor events. In a statement on the company’s site, they announced: “The government restrictions from 2 December will limit public attendance at indoor events to 1,000 people which makes it financially impossible to stage a production of this scale.” The show was due to transfer to Birmingham Repertory Theatre from 14 – 22 December however this has been thrown into doubt with today’s government announcement that Birmingham will be placed in Tier 3 locality restrictions.
