Tchaikovsky’s score and Anthony Ward’s sets and costumes combine with Bourne’s choreography to create a charmingly irreverent interpretation of the traditional Christmas favourite.
Expect a sprinkling of delicious new surprises in this reinvented production for 2021.
With family-sized helpings of Bourne’s trademark wit, pathos and magical fantasy, Nutcracker follows Clara’s bittersweet journey from a darkly comic Christmas Eve at Dr. Dross’ Orphanage, through a shimmering, ice-skating winter wonderland to the scrumptious candy kingdom of Sweetieland, influenced by the lavish Hollywood musicals of the 1930s.
There’s a sale offering savings of up to £32 on tickets for performances between Boxing Day and the end of January – excepting the Saturday Matinee performances.
You need to book by 13th December from here.
