The National Theatre presents

The Nutcracker

2 - 3 December 2022

The magical adventures of Clara and her beloved nutcracker doll come to life in this enchanting Christmas classic underscored by Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable music.

Join the family festivities at Christmas. Journey through the winter woodlands of the mythical land of sweets. Marvel at the mystical dances of faraway lands. Delight in the Waltz of the Flowers and the celebrated Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. And be swept away in the romantic grand pas de deux finale.

Artistic Director Damian Smith brings together the burgeoning talents of the National Theatre Ballet School students with guest artists in the roles of the charming Cavalier and the Sugar Plum Fairy.
