In the midst of a festive party, as the fire crackles and the pile of presents grows ever higher,
Clara is caught up in the warmth and excitement of Christmas and becomes enthralled by
her new Nutcracker doll. But, as the clock strikes midnight, her Nutcracker proves to be no
ordinary toy. After saving her Nutcracker from the wily Mouse King, Clara is whisked away
on the magical journey of a lifetime through a winter wonderland of dancing snowflakes and
the famous Sugar Plum Fairy.

Choreographed and directed by former Artistic Director David Nixon CBE, The Nutcracker is

Director, Choreographer and Costume Designer David Nixon CBE, said: “The Nutcracker is
not just a ballet, it is a tradition for many families and generations, a way of having shared

chance to revel in the child-like magic of Christmas.”
