About this show

The Nutcracker is a perennial Christmas favourite, packed with magical moments of one of the greatest of classical ballets, all to the sounds of one of Tchaikovsky's most famously tuneful scores. When young Clara's favourite Christmas presents - a nutcracker doll - comes to life, she is drawn into magical adventures that lead from a battle with the Mouse King to the Kingdom of Sweets. The fantasy is brought to vivid life through Peter Wright's reinterpretation of Lev Ivanov's choreography, and Julia Trevelyan Oman's wonderfully indulgent designs of late 19th-century grandeur, delicate in detail and rich in colour.
