Seating chart & directions
Journey back in time with English National Ballet to a frost-covered, gas-lit London. Join Clara, her Nutcracker and the magician Drosselmeyer in this traditional festive tale for all the family. In a world of Edwardian elegance, The Nutcracker brings to life the eternally popular Tchaikovsky score featuring the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Waltz of the Flowers.
On an enchanted Christmas Eve, under the heavy boughs of the candlelit tree, Clara battles with the Mouse King and falls in love with a handsome stranger. As the air grows colder and snowflakes begin to fall, Clara and her valiant Nutcracker take a hot air balloon ride across the frost-dusted London skyline from the glistening Land of Snow. Her fantastical journey continues as dancers from all over the world leap out of a magical puppet theatre and the Mouse King is finally vanquished.
*Family friendly performances, where under 5s are welcome, on Friday 14 December and Tuesday 1 January at 2.30pm. Schedule may change, please check ticketing site.
