Nutcracker tickets are a festive treat for all the family as this iconic ballet returns to London
The English National Ballet’s beloved adaptation of Nutcracker returns to the London Coliseum for the 2021 festive period – a tradition that has lasted for over 70 magical years.
Nutcracker tells the tale of Clara who is given an enchanted Nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve in Edwardian London. Together they embark on an enchanted adventure to discover a deliciously, magical world. Clara’s journey involves an epic battle with the Mouse King, being introduced to a handsome prince and an unforgettable journey to the Land of Sweets. Clara meets the Sugar Plum Fairy, before being whisked away on an awe-inspiring trip in a hot air balloon over the glistening Land of the Snow, where her adventure is only just beginning.
The English National Ballet has presented a version of Nutcracker every year since 1950 and this year’s production promises to be just as magical with over 100 dancers and musicians bringing the classic tale and Tchaikovsky’s iconic score to life.
Always a hugely popular show on the Christmas theatre calendar, Nutcracker is a delectable treat for the whole family, whether you’re aged 5 or 95. Don’t miss it at the London Coliseum from 16th December 2021.
