The Nutcracker at the London Coliseum

London Coliseum, St. Martin's Lane, London, WC2N 4ES

English National Ballet’s spectacular production of The Nutcracker returns to the London Coliseum this Christmas.

Set in a frost-covered, gas-lit Edwardian London, join Clara, her Nutcracker doll and the magician Drosselmeyer in this traditional, festive ballet for all the family.

This beautifully staged production brings to life Tchaikovsky’s score – featuring the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Waltz of the Flowers – and is a magical, memorable and must-see Christmas treat.

The Nutcracker runs from 13 December 2017 until 6 January 2018 at the London Coliseum.


On a sparkling Christmas Eve in a frost-dusted Edwardian London, Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker doll discover a magical world, where she battles with the Mouse King and meets a handsome stranger. As the air grows colder, Clara and her valiant Nutcracker take a hot air balloon ride across London to the glistening Land of Snow where her adventure really begins.
