The Nutcracker - the beloved Christmas classic
Music by Pyotr I Tchaikovsky
Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians

The highly acclaimed Russian State Ballet and Opera House returns with another popular ballet. Prepare to enter a magical new world.

Based on “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” written by ETA Hoffmann, it tells the story of Marie, a rather sad little girl, whose godfather Drosselmeyer gives her a nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve, which turns into a prince. When midnight strikes, the world turns all magical in the wintry glitter of Christmas Eve. Toys come alive, the Mouse-king and his mouse-army battle with the Nutcracker Prince and we travel through the Land of Snow to an enchanted place where the magic really begins….

Snow flurries, sweets, princes, magic, love, victories and defeats, and Tchaikovsky’s rousing score, are just some of the ingredients that will be brought together by this renowned Russian company.

A highly accessible ballet, full of familiar music such as the ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’ - a piece for a ballerina set to music written for the unique and almost eerie sounding instrument called celesta.

This is the ultimate and beautiful fairy-tale where goodness and beauty triumph.
