BRB at BBCThe Nutcracker may have finished here in Birmingham, but as I’m sure many of you know, we’re off to the O2 Arena in London to perform over the Christmas period (click here for details). Normally the dancers would be having a break, with many of them going overseas to see family over the festive season, however, they’ve been busy, busy, busy! Most have been in rehearsals, but Laura and Jonathan (pictured) were down at the BBC yesterday on BBC Breakfast, with Joe McElderry, who’s introducing the show, to perform a except from act 1 of The Nutcracker. You can watch the interview and the perfomance here.

But wait! That’s not quite it for Birmingham Royal Ballet on the TV. We also appeared on Central News on ITV last night, with interviews with Sir Peter Wright, Marion Tait and Victoria Marr. It’s a fascinating little feature on up-scaling from Birmingham Hippodrome to O2 with some lovely footage from the show and rehersals. Click here to watch it!
