With exquisite dancing and beautiful sets, English National Ballet brings to life Tchaikovsky’s classic Christmas ballet at the London Coliseum.

Set in a frost-dusted Edwardian London on Christmas Eve, Nutcracker tells the story of Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker doll as they 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.

More than 100 dancers and musicians take to the stage in this festive treat for all ages. It returns to its regular home at the London Coliseum after more than 70,000 audience members saw the show in 2014.
