Celebrate the joy and wonder of the holidays, when the Nutcracker returns with dancing snowflakes, waltzing flowers, cheeky mice, sky-high Christmas trees, ice cold snow queens, warm-blooded sugar fairies, princes and princesses, interesting people and much more.
It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go in the Concert Hall. The Royal ballet dances and whisks you away on a heartwarming adventure through the eyes of the pint-sized heroine Marie, on her journey to a fantastical land made entirely of sweets.
In George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker you will find elegant and classical choreography, and colourful decorations and costumes by Anthony Ward. Rocking around the Christmas Tree with Tjajkovskij’s wonderful music, and listening to music you will never get tired of.
Through the years, we all will be together, where the Nutcracker allows young and old to meet. All eyes are full of hope of what Christmas will bring. The clever and unusual story appeals across generations to everyone, who loves Christmas. Get ready, it's the most wonderful time of the year.
