Cheap The Nutcracker tickets at the Royal Opera House


The Show

Nothing is more Christmassy than Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker. The original show, with the scenario created by Marius Petipa and the choreography by Lev Ivanov, was first performed in 1892 at the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg. It initially had a poor reception, but the enchanting movements and unforgettable score have since made it one of the world’s best-loved ballets.

This Christmas, the Royal Opera House hosts the celebrated Sir Peter Wright's classic production. With a sparkling stage and theatrical magic such as a Christmas tree that grows before our eyes and toy soldiers come to life to fight the villainous Mouse King, The Nutcracker is not to be missed.

The Story

Tchaikovsky's timeless score enhances the enchanting experience with music including the Waltz of the Snowflakes and the magical Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy creating a real festive feel to the performance. Designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman drawing upon 19th-century images of Christmas also make this a classic production for the festive season.

The two-act ballet is adapted from E.T.A. Hoffmann's story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King and tells of a young girl who receives an enchanted nutcracker that leads her on a wonderful adventure. With mice and dolphins as well as tin and gingerbread soldiers, The Nutcracker appeals to those of all ages and is a great introduction to ballet.
