Bal­let: This new pro­duc­tion of The Nutcracker by the West Aus­tralian Bal­let uses Ital­ian de­signer Edoardo Sanchi’s all- white set evok­ing the world of a con­tem­po­rary 16- year- old. There’s a mys­te­ri­ous on­line boyfriend, Peter ( co­de­named Nutcracker), and Clara’s night­mare hinges on men­ac­ing viruses, school ex­ams and an ex­act­ing teacher. Ivan Caval­lari’s chore­og­ra­phy is witty, and Jayne Smeul­ders ( Clara) and Daryl Brand­wood ( Nutcracker) bring in­sight to their roles, writes critic Rita Clarke. His Majesty’s The­atre, ends tonight. Book­ings: ( 08) 9484 1133.
