Tchaikovsky’s magical ballet ‘The Nutcracker‘ has been retold in a most alluringly theatrical pop-up production which will delight audiences of all ages.
Shobhna Patel has incorporated a new paper engineering technique called the ‘paperscope’ and we have tried to illustrate the delicate but powerful storytelling in each of these pop-out spreads in our pictures.
The story is set on Christmas Eve in Clara and Fritz’s household.
Their mysterious uncle (a toymaker) presents them with a wooden nutcracker who magically comes to life when the clock strikes midnight.
This would make the most beautiful gift for book lovers and ballet lovers everywhere.
