Production photos of English National Ballet’s The Nutcracker at the London Coliseum.
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.
