The English National Ballet’s magical adaptation of Nutcracker will return to the London Coliseum for the fifth consecutive year for a Christmas 2020 season.

On Christmas Eve in Edwardian London, Clara is given an enchanted Nutcracker doll for Christmas, and the pair embark on an enchanted adventure to discover a magical world. Clara battles with the Mouse King, discovers a handsome prince, and journeys to the Land of Sweets, which is ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy. They meet sweet-makers from all around the world, and eventually take off in a hot air balloon ride over the glistening Land of the Snow, where Clara’s adventure is only just beginning.

Over 100 dancers and musicians bring Nutcracker to life, with exquisite dancing, beautiful sets and Tchaikovsky’s iconic score played live by the orchestra.

Following sold out runs every Christmas since 2016, Nutcracker returns to the London Coliseum from 10th December to 3rd January 2021. Don’t miss your chance to book for this unforgettable Christmas treat.
