Dancing magic at The Royal Opera House for Ella

Nine-year-old Ella from Loughborough suffers from bilateral cerebral palsy, which means that she has significant motor disabilities and spends some of her time confined to a wheelchair and also in her walking frame.

Ella loves ballet and has always been fascinated by the ballet story of The Nutcracker and in particular the Sugar Plum Fairy.  With the help of The Royal Opera House, Starlight made Ella’s wish to dance on stage as the Sugar Plum Fairy come true when she was invited to a very special matinee of The Nutcracker with The Royal Ballet.
