Journey back in time with English National Ballet to a frost-covered, gas lit world and join Clara, her Nutcracker doll and the magician Drosselmeyer in this traditional, festive tale for all the family.
Created by Artistic Director Wayne Eagling to celebrate the Company's 60th birthday, this new production of The Nutcracker will be English National Ballet's 10th interpretation of this much-loved classic. A world of Edwardian elegance designed by Peter Farmer brings to life the eternally popular Tchaikovsky score that features the 'Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy' and many other familiar favourites.
On an enchanted Christmas Eve, under the heavy boughs of the glittering candlelit tree Clara battles with the Mouse King and falls in love with a handsome Prince. As the air grows colder and snowflakes begin to fall, Clara and her valiant Nutcracker take a balloon ride across the skyline dusted with frost to the glistening Land of Snow where her adventure really begins.
Be the first to enjoy this classical production that promises to be a magical, memorable and unmissable Christmas treat.
Please note: There are no surtitles for this production.
