Event: Nutcracker English National Ballet London

The Nutcracker Tickets

London Coliseum, London

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

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

The Nutcracker tickets at the London Coliseum are available to book for performances from 15 December 2022 until 7 January 2023.

What is The Nutcracker about?

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.

English National Ballet’s acclaimed production of The Nutcracker has returned to the London Coliseum this Christmas, playing until Sunday 4 January 2015.

First performed in 2010 to celebrate English National Ballet’s 60th anniversary, Wayne Eagling’s version has since been seen by over 300,000 people. This year, Nutcracker sees two of English National Ballet’s rising stars make their debuts as Clara; Katja Khaniukova who performs alongside Ken Saruhashi’s debut as the Prince and Daniele Silingardi’s debut as the Nutcracker; and Ksenia Ovsyanick who performs alongside Max Westwell’s debut as the Prince and Fabian Reimair’s Nutcracker.

In a world of Edwardian elegance, Nutcracker brings to life the popular Tchaikovsky score featuring the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Waltz of the Flowers.

Based on concept by Toer van Schayk and Wayne Eagling, Nutcracker has choreography by Wayne Eagling and music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, performed live by the Orchestra of English National Ballet, with design by Peter Farmer and lighting by David Richardson.

English National Ballet are also presenting their production of Swan Lake at the London Coliseum this Christmas.
