Welcome the holiday season with this beloved and magical Christmas tale.
When midnight strikes, young Clara’s enchanted Christmas gift leads her into a wondrous world... with the valiant Nutcracker at her side, Clara defeats King Rat and his giant mice, and journeys to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets. There, the Sugar Plum Fairy bids everyone to dance in her honour.
Ben Stevenson’s acclaimed production of The Nutcracker is a sheer delight, with sparkling dance and stunning sets and costumes that bring a host of fanciful characters to life.
The Nutcracker is the perfect festive celebration for the whole family.
