ROH: The Nutcracker


Last shown on 17 January 2019

The Nutcracker has long been one of the most delightful ways to discover the enchantment of ballet – and makes for a delicious seasonal treat for all the family. Tchaikovsky’s much-loved music is matched to a magical adventure on Christmas Eve for Clara and her Nutcracker doll. Their journey to the Land of Sweets brings with it some of the most familiar of all ballet moments, such as the Dance of the Sugar  Plum Fairy and the Waltz of the  Flowers.  Peter Wright ’s production for  The  Royal Ballet keeps true to the spirit of this Russian ballet classic, with period details and dancing snowflakes.  The many solo roles and ensembles put the world-class skills of the Company to the fore in this Christmas classic.

2 hours 30 minutes
Anna Rose O'Sullivan, Marianela Nuñez, Vadim Muntagirov
