The Nutcracker at The Royal Opera House

Nothing says Christmas more than The Nutcracker ballet

It’s as seasonal as mince pies, mulled wine and corny cracker jokes. It features dancing snowflakes, a Sugar Plum Fairy and a Mouse King in the most opulent of Victorian settings. Oh, and there’s a Christmas tree that grows to seven feet tall. How could you not love it?

Everyone’s favourite ballet is back on the Royal Opera House stage with breathtaking costumes, dazzling choreography and Tchaikovsky’s luscious score. Peter Wright’s beguiling production will enchant all ages – it’s the perfect Christmas family entertainment. Book your ticket now and prepare to be enchanted.
