In Peter Wright's classic production, the stage sparkles with theatrical magic. A Christmas tree grows before our eyes, toy soldiers come to life to fight the villainous Mouse King and Clara is whisked to the Land of Sweets on a golden sleigh.
A young girl receives an enchanted nutcracker that leads her on a wonderful adventure, in this Christmas classic. Stunning choreography and Tchaikovsky's score combine in one of the best-loved of all ballets.
Tchaikovsky's score contains some of the best-known melodies in ballet, from the flurrying sounds of the Waltz of the Snowflakes to the dream-like Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the vigorous Russian Dance. Julia Trevelyan Oman's designs draw upon 19th-century images of Christmas, making this a classic production for the festive season.
