Royal Opera House: The Nutcracker

Discover the enchantment of ballet with this sparkling festive treat for the whole family.

Peter Wright’s much-loved production for The Royal Ballet, with gorgeous period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, keeps true to the spirit of this festive ballet classic, combining the thrill of the fairy tale with spectacular classical dancing.
