Celebrate the festive season with English National Ballet’s Nutcracker

Celebrate the festive season with English National Ballet’s Nutcracker


The magical Christmas ballet for all the family returns to the London Coliseum on 13 December 2017 – 6 January 2018.

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

On a sparkling Christmas Eve in a frost-dusted Edwardian London, Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker doll discover a magical world, where she battles with the Mouse King and meets a handsome stranger. As the air grows colder, Clara and her valiant Nutcracker take a hot air balloon ride across London to the glistening Land of Snow where her adventure really begins.

Enjoyed by over 79,000 people last year, the sparkling ballet is London’s magical Christmas tradition, suitable for all ages. See it in the splendour of the London Coliseum, at the heart of the West End, and only a short walk from the festive lights of Trafalgar Square, Regent’s Street and Covent Garden.

From the sound of the orchestra tuning up, to the final bows and cheers, a trip to English National Ballet’s Nutcracker is an unforgettable holiday treat.
