Create Magical Memories!

You're invited on an enchanting journey where you'll witness the favorite family festive ballet, The Nutcracker, transform into a fairytale. The Nutcracker, which has captured the imaginations of every generation, features a timeless score by the legendary composer Tchaikovsky. Full of romance and mystery, the story continues to attract audiences worldwide.

The Russian National Ballet continues with the iconic traditional staging. Including their enchanting costumes, glittering sets, and a company of over 55 expert performers who are dedicated to maintaining a solid tradition of superior classic Russian dance, it's an extraordinarily magical piece.

The Story of The Nutcracker

Based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, written by E.T.A Hoffman, it tells the story of Marie - a young girl whose emotions are rather low. Her godfather Drosselmeier gives her a nutcracker doll on Christmas eve, and the magic begins!

The eve of Christmas turns into an event full of glittery magic, including living toys, the Mouse King and his army and of course, The Nutcracker prince.

It's the perfect way to get into the festive spirit, whilst being enjoyed by the whole family.
