The Nutcracker invites you on a journey back in time with English National Ballet to a frost-covered, gas-lit London where you can join Clara, her Nutcracker and the magician Drosselmeyer in this traditional festive tale for all the family.
On an enchanted Christmas Eve, under the heavy boughs of the candlelit tree, Clara battles with the Mouse King and falls in love with a handsome stranger. As the air grows colder and snowflakes begin to fall, Clara and her valiant Nutcracker take a hot air balloon ride across the frost-dusted London skyline from the glistening Land of Snow.
In a world of Edwardian elegance, The Nutcracker brings to life Tchaikovsky’s eternally popular score featuring the Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy and Waltz Of The Flowers.
