The Nutcracker Suite is an old and much-beloved family Christmas favourite. Matthew Bourne’s version, however, is a somewhat different take on the classic.
One of the best-loved ballets, Nutcracker returns to London’s Coliseum and is a real festive treat from start to finish.
Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker is a truly spectacular score. There are three ballet versions this season in London alone. ENB have brought their production to the Mayflower, before heading home to the vast London Coliseum stage.
This winter, the worlds of classical ballet and immersive theatre will fuse for the first time, as Will Tuckett’s Nutcracker receives its world premiere at Wembley Park. Starring Adam Cooper (Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake) as Uncle Drosselmeyer, the production will invite audience members to explore Tchaikovsky’s Christmas classic in a 360-degree immersive environment. Will Tuckett’s Nutcracker will run at Wembley Park from 30 November 2016 to 8 January 2017.
