The magical Christmas tradition for all the family

This festive season, travel back in time to a magical world where anything is possible.

Embark on a fantastical journey alongside Clara and her enchanted doll, as Nutcracker is brought to life by over 100 dancers and musicians.

This new re-telling of the classic ballet is choreographed by English National Ballet’s Artistic Director Aaron S. Watkin and Olivier Award-winner Arielle Smith. Spectacular sets and costumes designed by Dick Bird transport you from Edwardian London to a frozen winter wonderland and the colourful Land of Sweets. English National Ballet Philharmonic perform Tchaikovsky’s iconic score live.

From the sound of the orchestra tuning up, to the final bows and applause, a trip to English National Ballet’s new Nutcracker is an unforgettable Christmas treat for audiences of all ages. Be amongst the first to see it in London this winter.
