Tour Update 2020/21
We are sad to announce that the forthcoming 2020/2021 National tour and Christmas season at Sadler’s Wells of Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker! has been postponed until 2021/2022.
Recent events and the inevitable knock-on effect these have had to the production’s schedule/timetable, coupled with the fact that the industry continues to wait for confirmation as to when theatres can reopen without social distancing has now made it impossible to mount this new production within this ever-shortening time frame.
All bookers with tickets for the 2020/21 Christmas season of the show at Sadler’s Wells will be transferred into equivalent performances in the 2021/22 season. Bookers do not need to do anything at this point and should expect to receive an email from Sadler’s Wells in the last week of September detailing their new booking information. Nutcracker! will now play at Sadler’s Wells from 7 December 2021 – 30 January 2022.
Matthew Bourne said today
“Today’s announcement is heartbreaking for everyone in the New Adventures family. We love our loyal audiences throughout the UK and we feel a great sense of sadness that we will not get to perform for you on our annual tour at this time. This year would have seen our 18th consecutive Christmas season at Sadler’s Wells with our sparkling new production of Nutcracker! I know that there was great anticipation to see this beloved show back after nine years but, alas, we must wait another year for a return trip to Sweetieland! In the meantime, we look forward to shortly announcing a series of adventurous plans, both on and off stage, for 2021 and we live for the day when the curtain rises again on a New Adventures show”.
Tour dates are currently being rescheduled so please keep an eye on the website for updates.
If you have purchased tickets for the 2020/21 tour, please wait for your venue to contact you.
