Why See Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker?

Christmas ShowsBalletDance & BalletThe Nutcracker


The genius of Matthew Bourne is realised in his critically acclaimed, and widely adored, production of the classic ballet, The Nutcracker. Featuring heaps of Bourne's signature style, wit, and pathos, alongside exquisite choreography and Tchaikovsky's sweeping score, Nutcracker! is the sweetest treat for all the family.

Following Clara's bittersweet journey from a hilariously bleak Christmas Eve at Dr Dross' Orphanage, through a shimmering, ice-skating winter wonderland to the scrumptious candy kingdom of Sweetieland, Nutcracker! is one of the most popular dance productions ever staged in the UK. Don't miss your chance to see it live!
