The English National Ballet Are Bringing The Nutcracker Back To London For Christmas

Don’t step into Christmas – dance into Christmas with the English National Ballet’s version of The Nutcracker!

Every year, London holds its breath that Christmas will be a winter dreamland, where snowflakes melt into your mulled cider, and that special someone spots you looking damn fine under the mistletoe. Every year, sadly, the reality falls a little flat. Fortunately, the English National Ballet have decided that 2018 is the year to make dreamland come true! Their production of The Nutcracker is pirouetting into London Coliseum this December, aiming to transport you to the Land of Snow.

Nutcracker 01

The story of Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker doll is a classic that has delighted audiences for over a century. Tchaikovsky’s score has also become synonymous with Christmas, so it’s basically double the magic. Clara’s journey takes her from Edwardian London to a magical realm, where she will battle the Mouse King and meet a handsome stranger.

Imagine if that happened on the Central line… She also takes a detour to the land of sweets, as if we weren’t jealous enough of her already.

Following a record-breaking run at the Coliseum in 2016 and ’17, English National Ballet has brought the show back for an encore. Luckily for you, tickets are now on sale! We guarantee you won’t find anything quite as enchanting on Netflix, so treat yourself to an evening at the ballet…
