The Story

On a festive Christmas Eve in London, a girl named Clara receives a Nutcracker doll as a present from a mysterious family friend named Dr. Drosselmeyer. The house descends into an eerie stillness as the guests leave and the children go to bed. When the clock strikes twelve, the young girl’s world transforms along with her Nutcracker, who turns into a dashing prince. Together, Clara and the Nutcracker battle the evil Mouse King, visit the Land of Snow, and travel to the mystical Puppet Theatre in a hot-air balloon. Book tickets to Nutcracker at London Coliseum and go watch this masterpiece with your kids and your entire family.

De show was erg leuk, mijn 3 kinderen vonden het verhaal en de kleding erg mooi. Het enigste wat ik zeer jammer vond was dat ik bij het online boeken geen knop zag of keus had om kinderprijs te kiezen....automatisch full price werd er gerekend ook voor de kinderen .... Achteraf bleek dat er ook kindertarieven zijn...bij het theater, die mij niet is aangeboden. Dus ik zou het op prijs stellen als er voor 3 kinderen teveel betaalde bedrag zou worden retour betaald Mvg A. Adjodha uit Nederland
