Journey back in time with English National Ballet to a frost covered, gas lit London and join Clara, her nutcracker doll and the magician Drosselmeyer in this traditional, festive tale for all the family. In a world of Edwardian elegance, Nutcracker brings to life the eternally popular Tchaikovsky score featuring the Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy and Waltz Of The Flowers. This classical production is a magical, memorable and unmissable Christmas treat. 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 to the glistening Land Of Snow where her adventure really begins.

The Nutcracker - Royal Ballet, Royal Opera HouseThe Nutcracker - Royal Ballet
Venue: Royal Opera House

Clara, a young girl, creeps downstairs on Christmas Eve to retrieve her favourite present. But a mysterious magician, Drosselmeyer, is waiting to sweep her off on a magical adventure. The Nutcracker was first performed in 1892 at the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg. It initially had a poor reception, but its combination of enchanting choreography and an unforgettable score have since made it one of the best-loved of all ballets. Tchaikovsky's score was commissioned by the director of the Russian Imperial Theatres following the success of Sleeping Beauty in 1890. Marius Petipa created the scenario, based on a fairytale by E. T. A. Hoffman, and Lev Ivanov provided the choreography. Peter Wright's production pays homage to Petipa's original, and 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. Julia Trevelyan Oman's designs draw upon 19th-century images of Christmas, making this a truly enchanting production for the festive season.

Venue:Royal Opera House, Bow StreetLondon, WC2E 9DD.
