The Nutcracker, created by Peter Wright in 1984, is the production par excellence of an all-time ballet favourite. It is Christmas Eve and Herr Drosselmeyer sweeps young Clara away on a fantasy adventure in which time is suspended. The living-room becomes a battlefield as they take a magical journey through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets. Tchaikovsky's glittering score, gorgeous festive stage designs, and The Royal Ballet's captivating dancing make this Nutcracker the quintessential Christmas experience.
