The magical Christmas ballet for all the family
Over 100 dancers and musicians bring Nutcracker to life with exquisite dancing, beautiful sets and Tchaikovsky’s glorious score played live. On a sparkling Christmas Eve in a frost-dusted Edwardian London, Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker doll discover a magical world, where she battles with the Mouse King and meets a handsome stranger. As the air grows colder, Clara and her valiant Nutcracker take a hot air balloon ride across London to the glistening Land of Snow where her adventure really begins. From the sound of the orchestra tuning up, to the final bows and cheers, a trip to English National Ballet’s Nutcracker is an unforgettable Christmas treat. Nutcracker returns in 2016 with performances in Milton Keynes, Liverpool and at the London Coliseum where over 73,000 audience members – young and old – made it part of their holiday celebrations last year. ★★★★★ "Dazzling." – The Daily Telegraph "This is now a contender as one of the best Nutcrackers around." – The Daily Express Not suitable for under 5s.
