The Nutcracker at the Royal Albert Hall

With Birmingham Royal Ballet

Tchaikovsky The Nutcracker

Koen Kessels conductor
Birmingham Royal Ballet
London Philharmonic Orchestra

Following a critically-acclaimed season in 2017, Birmingham Royal Ballet brings the beloved Christmas ballet back to the Royal Albert Hall. With its breathtaking setting, grand ensemble pieces and ravishing Tchaikovsky score, this enchanting production is the quintessential Christmas treat for all the family.

We join Clara in the Victorian setting of her family home. As midnight strikes, the magical Christmas tree grows and grows, Clara’s nutcracker doll and his army of toy soldiers come to life, and Clara is swept away into a fantasy adventure through an enchanting winter wonderland of dancing snowflakes to the kingdom of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Created especially for the Royal Albert Hall with stunning lighting, projections and gorgeous period costumes, the spectacular staging of this Christmas classic is brought to life by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s world-class dancers and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
