Buy Nutcracker tickets early for the whole family as this Christmas theatre institution sells out year-after-year

The English National Ballet continues its decades-long Christmas tradition as their beloved Nutcracker returns to the London Coliseum for the 2022 festive season.

Nutcracker is set in Edwardian England on a twinkling Christmas Eve as young Clara is gifted an enchanted Nutcracker. Together they embark on an unforgettable adventure into a magical world, battling the villainous Mouse King and journeying through the Land of Snow to the dazzling Kingdom of Sweets where the Sugar Plum Fairy awaits.

The English National Ballet has presented a version of Nutcracker every year since 1950 and this year’s production proudly continues the tradition with over 100 dancers and musicians bringing the classic tale and Tchaikovsky’s iconic score to life.

Nutcracker is one of the best ways for audiences young and old to discover the enchanting majesty of ballet and is the perfect Christmas treat for the whole family. Nutcracker opens at the London Coliseum on 15th December for a three-week season.
