I went to see the Royal Ballet perform The Nutcracker in London last Friday and the role of Clara was performed by a dancer called Emma Maguire. She gave herself heart and soul to the role, especially in the first act with its scenes of happy family togetherness. She made you feel believe in both the power of family and the power of Christmas, which was amazing considering what she has suffered over the last couple of years since her schoolteacher mother, Ann Maguire, was stabbed to death by one of her pupils whilst teaching a Spanish lesson. You suddenly realised that she would be facing a second Christmas without her mother, that she wouldn’t have the cosy gathering that the family has in The Nutcracker, which made her performance all the more remarkable. This picture, with its ballet feel, is dedicated to Emma and to the memory of her mother.
