The Nutcracker at the Royal Albert Hall

28 December 2017 – 31 December 2017 | Visit website

For the first time ever, Birmingham Royal Ballet and the Royal Albert Hall present The Nutcracker this Christmas, using state-of-the-art technology to conjure a vivid and magical winter wonderland. This new version of the universally-acclaimed, quintessential Christmas ballet, suitable for all the family, will grace the world’s most famous stage for seven performances from 28 to 31 December 2017.
 
The innovative production premieres at the Royal Albert Hall complete with a magical transformation scene, 75kg of artificial snow and ground-breaking new projections from the award-winning 59 Productions (An American in Paris, London 2012’s opening ceremony).

This exceptionally Christmassy production of Birmingham Royal Ballet’s The Nutcracker, with its classic story, glorious dancing and ravishing Tchaikovsky score played by a full symphony orchestra, is set to be an exciting addition to London’s festive celebrations. Featuring choreography by Sir Peter Wright, Vincent Redmon and Lev Ivanov (choreographer of the original 1892 production), The Nutcracker follows young Clara as she is swept away into a fantasy adventure through an enchanting winter wonderland of dancing snowflakes to the magical Kingdom of the Sweets.
 
The Royal Albert Hall’s specially-adapted version will blend the best of the old and the new, using innovative projections from Olivier and Tony award-winning company 59 Productions (National Theatre’s War Horse, Sydney Opera House VIVID Festival) to bring to life the entrancing, wintry world of The Nutcracker.

The Nutcracker at the Royal Albert Hall Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AP. Thursday 28 December, 7pm, Friday 29 December, 2pm and 7pm, Saturday 30 December, 2pm and 7pm, Sunday 31 December, 1pm and 5pm. Tickets from £35.
