The tradition continues. Triumphantly returning to His Majesty’s stage, The Nutcracker is an enchanting Christmas treat filled with pure joy for the whole family. Set in the 19th century English winter wonderland, this luminous, classical ballet will capture your heart and imagination as it transports you to the magical world of brave toy soldiers and dancing sugar canes.


Set to the beloved music of Tchaikovsky, follow Clara and her Nutcracker solider as she embarks on a journey filled with colourful characters, breathtaking costumes and majestic scenery. From the captivating Land of Sweets, to the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, the evil deeds of the Mouse King and the iconic snow scene in all its glory, this enchanting, traditional ballet will captivate audiences of all ages.


Join the record breaking 21,000 sell out audience who made The Nutcracker part of their Christmas tradition in 2016. To avoid disappointment secure your tickets today before The Nutcracker sells out again.

Join us in our mission to reduce waste – read the Synopsis before the show!


Each performance season we print over 12,000 synopsis and casting sheets. That’s nearly 50,000 sheets of paper a year!

This single use paper has a significant impact on the environment and a financial cost to our business that we’d rather spend on the stage to make your experience at our performances even more magical.

For our upcoming season of The Nutcracker we’ll be significantly reducing the number of printed casting and synopsis sheets.  

But don’t worry, you’ll now be able to access the casting and synopsis prior to the performance online!
