A tale of adventure and magic, The Nutcracker is one of the Christmas season's must-see shows and who better to perform this cherished classic than the English National Ballet.
Although based on a story written by E.T.A. Hoffman almost 200 years ago, the ballet version of the tale is best known for its beautiful orchestral compositions written by Tchaikovsky. The score to the English National Ballet's production will be performed by English National Opera's orchestra.
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.
