Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker returns to the London Coliseum this December in another bewitching production by the English National Ballet.

It’s Christmas Eve in Edwardian London and Clara is playing with her enchanted nutcracker doll. Together, Clara and her brave Nutcracker discover an incredible world where they meet a handsome stranger and battle the evil Mouse King. As the snow begins to fall, Clara and Nutcracker take a hot air balloon across London to the spectacular Land of Snow.

Featuring an extraordinary cast of over 100 world-class dancers and musicians, the choreography, score and sets of this quintessential Christmas ballet will truly transport you.

Hailed as one of the best productions of The Nutcracker yet, don’t miss your chance to see this festive treat at one of the West End’s most iconic venues.

I’ve always wanted to see a ballet and thought Nutcracker would be the perfect Christmassy one to watch. The parts with the story were magical and I loved it. But the middle part where it was just ballet, yes very talented but very much the same, I started to lose interest. However my sister in law loved it all. So personal preference I suppose

I went to Children's performance with 2 granddaughters, age 7 and 5, who both loved the ballet and were mesmerised. The Coliseum is in an ideal location too.

My first ballet experience, and it was fantastic. I am looking forward to booking something similar in the near future.

My sister and I really enjoyed our first experience of attending a ballet. I chose The Nutcracker because of the music. The story telling through dance, the music and the venue was very good. The usher was vigilant in ensuring the audience was respectful!
