It’s a Nutcracker! like no other, adored by critics and audiences alike.
Matthew Bourne’s spectacular and much-loved production of The Nutcracker returns to Sadler’s Wells this Christmas. Featuring family-sized helpings of Bourne’s trademark wit, pathos and magical fantasy all set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score.
Anthony Ward’s delectable sets and costumes combine with Bourne’s dazzling choreography to create a fresh and charmingly irreverent interpretation of the traditional Christmas favourite.
Hailed by The Observer as “the undisputed king of dance theatre”, master storyteller Matthew Bourne and his New Adventures company have produced some of the most successful dance productions of the last two decades including The Red Shoes, Swan Lake, Cinderella, Edward Scissorhands and most recently his acclaimed reimagining of Romeo and Juliet.
Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker! is booking from 07 December 2021 until 30 January 2022 at Sadler’s Wells, London.
