When Clara’s toys come to life at the stroke of midnight, she embarks on a fantastical journey through a winter wonderland. Be whisked from the heart-warming Christmas Eve party where Fritz and Clara meet the magician Drosselmeyer, to the rousing battle between King Rat and the toy soldiers, through a flurry of Snowflakes to the Kingdom of Sweets, where Clara meets the Sugar Plum Fairy and her prince.

The production will feature Peter Wright’s award-winning choreography which was adapted by David Bintley for the acclaimed production at the Royal Albert Hall. For Christmas 2020, Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Carlos Acosta and The REP’s Sean Foley have created a special version of The Nutcracker. This new, 90-minute magical experience will conjure up the most dazzling and enchanting moments from the timeless full-length show. It will feature the Snowflakes, Drosselmeyer, Fritz and Clara’s Christmas Eve party, King Rat’s battle, the Kingdom of Sweets dances from around the world, the iconic Sugar Plum Fairy and, of course, the Nutcracker Prince – all brought to life by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s world-class dancers, this enchanting spectacle features the Royal Ballet Sinfonia performing Tchaikovsky’s cherished score live.
