English National Ballet’s Nutcracker

Featuring over 100 dancers and musicians, this perennial Christmas favourite brings holiday magic to the West End. Complete with ethereal dancing, intricate sets and Tchaikovsky’s popular score played live. Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of the Nutcracker as it comes to life on the stage of the London Coliseum.

It is a glittering Christmas Eve in snow-kissed Edwardian London when Clara receives a gift. Join her adventure as Clara and her new Nutcracker doll venture into a fantastical world, where she battles the formidable Mouse King and meets a handsome stranger. As the night air grows colder Clara and her faithful Nutcracker take a hot air balloon ride far above London, to the glistening Land of Snow where her adventure truly begins.

Please bear in mind

This production is recommended for ages 5+, children under 5 will not be admitted.

Facts and critical acclaim

  • The Nutcracker is adapted from the 1816 novel Nutcracker and the King of Mice by T.A Hoffmann. The base material is far darker than the ballet and had to be considerably edited to make it the family friendly show it is today!
  • Tchaikovsky based the "voice" of the Sugar Plum Fairy on a new instrument he discovered in Paris: the celesta. He also used children's toys as instruments throughout the piece.
  • Arielle Smith is an Olivier award winning choreographer who was listed as one of The Guardians Ones to Watch and named one of The Stage’s 25 individuals to become future theatre stars. English National Ballet’s Artistic Director, Aaron S. Watkin won the prestigious Erik Bruhn Award and has directed pieces across the world, including France and Russia.
