The Royal Ballet: The Nutcracker

Join Clara at a delightful Christmas Eve party that becomes a magical adventure once everyone else is tucked up in bed. Marvel at the brilliance of Tchaikovsky’s score, as Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker fight the Mouse King and visit the Sugar Plum Fairy in the glittering Kingdom of Sweets.

Peter Wright’s much-loved production, with gorgeous period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, keeps true to the spirit of this festive ballet classic, combining the thrill of the fairy tale with spectacular dancing. Featuring the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and a cast including Anna Rose O’Sullivan and Marcelino Sambé, this promises to be a sparkling festive treat for the whole family!
