English National Ballet's magical production of The Nutcracker returns to The London Coliseum in December to enchant London audiences all over again.

Set on Christmas Eve at the Stahlbaum house, the Nutcracker is an unmissable Christmas fairy tale about Clara and her Nutcracker doll given to her by local toymaker Drosselmeyer. As the clock strikes midnight, Clara awakens beneath the beautiful Christmas tree and begins an amazing adventure which takes her to an enchanted forest wonderland in the Land of Snow and on to the to the Sugar Garden in the Kingdom of Sweets. It's the experience of a lifetime: witness Clara battling with the marauding Mouse King, flying on an origami bird, dancing with snowflakes and falling in love with the handsome Nutcracker Prince. The eternally popular Tchaikovsky score includes the famous Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Waltz of the Flowers and many other favourites.

With exuberant choreography by Wayne Eagling and sumptuous Edwardian designs by Peter Farmer, The Nutcracker features English National Ballet's company of over 100 world-class dancers and musicians bringing The Nutcracker to life in a colourful, entertaining night out for everyone.
