Featuring a timeless score from this gifted composer, The Nutcracker is a renowned Russian classic presenting, as it does, evocative music and exquisite dance.
This ballet, with its mystery and romance, has captured the imagination of many generations over the years and continues to attract large audiences worldwide.
This most famous of fantasy ballets for all the family begins as night falls on Christmas Eve. As snowflakes fall outside, the warm glow of the open fire sends flickering shadows across the boughs of the Christmas tree and all the presents beneath.
When midnight strikes we have swept away to a fairy tale world where nothing is quite as it seems, toy dolls spring to life, the Mouse King and his mouse army battle with the Nutcracker Prince and we travel through the Land of Snow to an enchanted place the magic really begins…
