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 Drosslemeyer'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.

Northern Ballet's The Nutcracker brings to life everyone's favourite Christmas story. Performed to Tchaikovsky's enduring score, played live by the Northern Ballet Sinfonia, The Nutcracker awakens childlike imagination in us all.

Running Time: 1hr 53mins
