The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

Costumes plucked from the most gorgeous chocolate box; Tchaikovsky’s score to transport you to a land of dreams; and a story lifted straight from the pages of a classic fairy tale. Read more …

This winter, banish the dark skies – and transport your whole family into the world of the Nutcracker Prince and the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Experience a fantastical adventure with a little girl called Clara, as she drifts off to sleep on Christmas Eve. She meets her Prince, is confronted by a battle of larger-than-life mice and rats, and is whisked into the luscious land of sweets – it even snows on stage!

The critical consensus

The Nutcracker is perfectly decadent, sumptuous, delicious fest for all the senses and will continue to delight audiences around the country until February 2018. It is unquestionably the best dream you'll have all Christmas.

With enough spectacle and showmanship to keep kids big and small spellbound, Scottish Ballet’s revival of Peter Darrel’s Nutcracker at the Festival Theatre and on tour is the perfect Christmas present.
