Nutcracker -- The magical Christmas ballet for all the family. Over 100 dancers and musicians bring Nutcracker to life with exquisite
dancing, beautiful sets and Tchaikovsky's glorious score played live.
On a sparkling Christmas Eve in a frost-dusted Edwardian London, Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker doll
discover a magical world, where she battles with the Mouse King and meets a handsome stranger. As the air grows colder, Clara and her valiant Nutcracker take a hot air balloon ride across
London to the glistening Land of Snow where her adventure really begins.
From the sound of the orchestra tuning up, to the final bows and cheers, a trip to English National
Ballet's Nutcracker in the splendour of the London Coliseum is an unforgettable Christmas treat.
Nutcracker returns following hugely successful performances in 2015, when over
70,000 audience members – young and old – made it part of their holiday celebrations.
