Until 13 December, Birmingham Hippodrome
Birmingham Royal Ballet’s evergreen production of The Nutcracker has been part of the City’s Christmas tradition for over 26 years and returns to Birmingham Hippodrome this November.
Join young Clara as she is swept away into an enchanting winter wonderland of dancing snowflakes and a Sugar Plum Fairy. Her magical Christmas tree and her handsome prince with his army of toy soldiers are an unforgettable delight. In this most festive ballet, gigantic sets, lavish costumes, 60 dancers and a full orchestra combine to make the perfect Christmas treat for the entire family.
This world-famous production by Sir Peter Wright, with exquisite designs by John Macfarlane, is acclaimed as one of the best.
