What is the difference between this performance and the original Nutcracker?
Nutcracker Delights is a shorter, simplified version of English National Ballet's traditional production of Nutcracker. The performance, running at 75 minutes with no interval, features highlights including the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Prince, the Snowflakes, the Flowers, the Spanish dance and more.

Why is English National Ballet not performing their full version of Nutcracker?
ENB have created Nutcracker Delights as a shorter, simplified version of our traditional production of Nutcracker in order to make it easier to maximise social distancing for the audience, performers, technicians and everyone involved in the production. A shorter running time, with no interval, will allow for complete, enhanced cleaning front and back of house between matinee and evening performances each day.
