The Nutcracker

Recorded live from the Royal Opera House.
A fixture of the Royal Ballet since its première in 1984 (with revisions in 1999), this spectacular and large-scale production features over 57 roles on stage, from Royal Ballet principals to students of the Royal Ballet School and has been performed over 370 times.

Join Clara at a delightful Christmas Eve party that becomes a magical adventure once everyone else is tucked up in bed. Marvel at the brilliance of Tchaikovsky’s score, as Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker fight the Mouse King and visit the Sugar Plum Fairy in the glittering Kingdom of Sweets.

Peter Wright’s much-loved production for The Royal Ballet, with gorgeous period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, keeps true to the spirit of this festive ballet classic, combining the thrill of the fairy tale with spectacular dancing.
