About The Nutcracker
A magician with secrets, an enchanted gift, a battle with the
Mouse King, a guiding angel and a visit through the Land of Snow
to the Kingdom of Sweets: it must be the seasonal favorite, The
Nutcracker. The ballet draws on all the imagination and fantasy of
E.T.A. Hoffmann's story of Christmas Eve, when young Clara creeps
downstairs for one of her presents, but finds herself instead at
the start of a night of magical adventures. Tchaikovsky's music is
some of the most instantly memorable of all ballet, with a wealth
of famous melodies. This is classical ballet at its most
approachable and visually entrancing, with something for everyone
to enjoy, from the youngest in the family to the oldest. It's a
present to unwrap yourself this Christmas for that bit of extra
