The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, Disney’s long-awaited festive film, features our very own Trinity Boys Choir.

Based on the E.T.A. Hoffman’s The Nutcracker and the Mouse King and Marius Petipa’s The Nutcracker, the film features a stellar cast, including Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Helen Mirren and Morgan Freeman.

The Trinity Boys Choir worked on the soundtrack. Adapted from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker by James Newton Howard, the score was recorded over four sessions earlier this year.

The choir have been asked to work on a number of film soundtracks, with others including Maleficent; The Hunger Games: Mockingjay parts 1 and 2; Roman J Israel, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

David Swinson, Head of Music, said: “James Newton Howard’s brilliant soundtrack cleverly incorporates melodies from Tchaikovsky’s well known ballet score”.

Well done to all involved!
