No Christmas would be complete without a visit to see Tchaikovsky's classic ballet "The Nutcracker".
When Clara creeps downstairs on Christmas Eve to play with her new nutcracker she gets the shock of her life... when the clock chimes midnight the Christmas tree starts growing through the ceiling!
Her nutcracker soldier then springs to life and fights off the evil Mouse King, before leading Clara to the Sugar Plum Fairy's realm in the Kingdom of Sweets. A magnificent Toytown battle then follows, and romance blossoms with a handsome Prince.
This show will leave you with a festive glow long after the New Year has been and gone.
Got a question? – Talk about Nutcracker
