Experience the magic of Tchaikovsky’s famous score as the enchanting world of The Nutcracker is brought to life at the Royal Opera House.

Late on Christmas Eve, a young girl named Clara tiptoes downstairs in search of her favourite present, a nutcracker doll. There, she is met by the mysterious magician Drosselmeyer who transports Clara on a dream-like adventure, through the magical Land of Snow and Kingdom of Sweets where she encounters the Mouse King and Sugar Plum Fairy.

Expect breathtaking sets inspired by 19th-century Christmas images, sparkling stage effects with a Christmas tree that grows before your eyes, and famous melodies in Peter Wright's spectacular production performed by The Royal Ballet.
