New Adventures’ much loved production of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker! is one of the most popular dance productions ever presented in the UK. Originally created in 1992 for the ballet's centenary, it returned most recently in 2012 to celebrate it's own 20th Birthday.
This delicious theatrical feast has family sized helpings of Matthew Bourne’s trademark wit, pathos and magical fantasy. Nutcracker! follows Clara’s bittersweet journey from a hilariously bleak Christmas Eve at Dr. Dross’ Orphanage for waifs and strays, through a shimmering, ice-skating, winter wonderland to the scrumptious candy kingdom of Sweetieland.
"A MASTERCLASS IN HOW TO HAVE WITTY AND WONDERFUL FUN WITH TCHAIKOVSKY'S ICONIC BALLET"
Tchaikovsky’s glorious score and Olivier award winning designer, Anthony Ward’s unforgettable sets and costumes combine with sizzling choreography to create a fresh, hip and charmingly irreverent interpretation of the traditional Christmas favourite that will delight the whole family.
"Bourne laces his glittering confection with the wit and sly humour that’s become his trademark…. It’s like watching a selection box sparkle into life"
