Further info

Christmas Eve in the twinkling drawing room of the Edwards' family home. Amidst the commotion the fire crackles and the pile of presents grows ever taller.

Uncle Drosselmeyer's curious box of performing toys captivates the children and adults alike, but it is the wooden Nutcracker doll that enchants young Clara most.

Share in Clara's adventures as she is swept away by her Nutcracker prince into a magical winter wonderland of dancing snowflakes and the famous Sugar Plum Fairy.

This traditional favourite has Northern Ballet's unique magic scattered throughout.  Book early to avoid disappointment!
