Why Watch The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker by the English National Ballet comes to life at the London Coliseum every winter. The breathtakingly beautiful ballet production is a winter wonderland, eagerly awaited by audiences, both new and old. The leading duo, Shiori Kase and Cesar Corrales, pirouette perfectly to the stirring music of Tchaikovsky. The bewitching set design and arresting costumes of the entire cast, from the rats to the toy soldiers, creates a delightful sensory experience. An enduring Christmas tradition across the world, the ballet is a treat for the entire family!

The Story

The Nutcracker is the classic story based on Alexandre Dumas’s ‘The Nutcracker and the Mouse King’. In the English National Ballet’s version, the story takes place in Edwardian London, where the protagonist Clara discovers a magical world with her nutcracker. Watch as she battles the Mouse King, embarks on an adventure of her own, and bumps into a handsome stranger. With a Christmas setting, the story is abounding with magic and miracles!
