An enchanted dolls' house, an evil governess, and a nutcracker who may just be a handsome prince in disguise - this winter, prepare to enter a magical new world...
Following on from the hugely successful productions Cinderella and The Sleeping Beauty comes a revival of The Nutcracker, a sweet yet deliciously sharp take on ETA Hoffmann's original story Nutcracker and the King of Mice.
This fresh and vivid retelling of the famous Christmas story features stunning sets and costumes, breathtaking choreography and Tchaikovsky's sumptuous score performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.
