Journey back in time with English National Ballet to a frost-covered, gas-lit London and join Clara, her Nutcracker doll and Drosselmeyer in this traditional, festive tale for all the family.
This new production created by Artistic Director, Wayne Eagling, is the highlight of our 60th birthday season. A world of Edwardian elegance designed by Peter Farmer brings to life the eternally popular Tchaikovsky score that features the 'Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy' and many other familiar favourites.
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 Prince. As the air grows colder and snowflakes begin to fall, Clara and her valiant Nutcracker travel across the frost-dusted London skyline to the glistening Land of Snow, where her adventure really begins.
Be the first to enjoy this classical production that promises to be a magical, memorable and unmissable Christmas treat.
Please note: There are no surtitles for this production.

The Coliseum Theatre (also known as the London Coliseum) is on St. Martin's Lane, in the City of Westminster. It is one of London's largest and best equipped theatres and opened in 1904, designed by theatrical architect Frank Matcham (designer of the London Palladium), for impresario Oswald Stoll. Their ambition was to build the largest and finest 'People's palace of entertainment' of its age.
