Journey back in time with English National Ballet to a frost-covered, gas-lit London and join Clara, her Nutcracker and the magician Drosselmeyer in this traditional festive tale for all the family. In a world of Edwardian elegance, The Nutcracker brings to life the eternally popular Tchaikovsky score featuring the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Waltz of the Flowers.
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 from the glistening Land of Snow. Her fantastical journey continues as dancers from all over the world leap out of a magical puppet theatre and the Mouse King is finally vanquished.

We really enjoyed the show especially the end of the first part and the entire second part. All the dancers dance marvellously. We had a great evening, thank you so much.

The main characters performed very well, but disappointed with some of the cast. Out of time, general lack of finesse form some dances.

keith London Box Office customer
Impressive performance and the costumes were really superb. (The 'explosions' created some smoke which irritated some people's throats -good idea to have a bottle of water handy.)
