English National Ballet’s The Nutcracker returns to the London Coliseum this Christmas, for a strictly limited four-week run. Originally written in 1892, this two-act ballet – set on Christmas Eve – has become a festive stalwart with its sparkling wintery setting, breathtaking choreography, and stunning score by Tchaikovsky.

Enter a dazzling world where toys come to life, sweets sing and dance, and anything is possible. Follow Clara and her beloved Nutcracker doll as they battle the evil Mouse King, dance in a beautiful snow-dusted forest, and celebrate with the Sugar Plum Fairy in the Land of Sweets. Featuring Tchaikovsky’s iconic musical motifs, English National Ballet’s production sees more than a hundred dancers and musicians tell this classic story of Clara’s Christmas adventure in snowy Edwardian London.

The Nutcracker plays from 11th December to 5th January; and, as its 2016, 2017 and 2018 seasons all sold out, advance booking is essential. The production is suitable for all ages and best of all, London Coliseum is located an easy tube ride away from us at the Mercure London Paddington so book now and add some extra magical sparkle to this festive season!
