Over 100 dancers and musicians bring Nutcracker to life with exquisite dancing, beautiful sets and Tchaikovsky’s popular score played live.
On a sparkling Christmas Eve in a frost-dusted Edwardian London, Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker doll discover a magical world, where she battles with the Mouse King and meets a handsome stranger. As the air grows colder, Clara and her valiant Nutcracker take a hot air balloon ride across London to the glistening Land of Snow where her adventure really begins.
From the sound of the orchestra tuning up, to the final bows and cheers, a trip to see the English National Ballet at the London Coliseum is an unforgettable Christmas treat.

This was a truly beautiful rendition of the classic. The scenery and costumes were beautifully traditional, and all performances were strong. A great experience for everyone!

A must see for any little girl who dreams of becoming a ballerina. Truely magical. The interpretation of the story was slightly different than I gave seen in that there was no dancing sweeties etc but there was a beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy solo.

I have seen several renditions of The Nutcracker but this was possibly my favorite! The scenery was amazingly elaborate. I do wish the costumes would have been a little better. The theater was nice but a bit warm. Other than that, everything was wonderful!
