After a long sixteen months, the Royal Opera House’s international cinema programme of live events returns with this much-loved ballet classic – an enchanting, festive treat for the whole family!

The Nutcracker is a family favourite at Christmas time and is one of the most delightful ways to discover the enchantment of ballet. The story of Clara, a girl on a magical Christmas Eve adventure, is accompanied by sparkling music and even dancing sweets! Choreography Peter Wright, Tchaikovsky's glittering score, the gorgeous festive stage designs, and The Royal Ballet's captivating dancing make this Nutcracker the quintessential Christmas experience.

Watch the full company of The Royal Ballet and the Orchestra of The Royal Opera House, conducted by Koen Kessels. The stellar cast features Akane Takada as the Sugar Plum Fairy; Cesar Corrales as her Prince; Isabella Gasparini as Clara; and Luca Acri as Hans-Peter (the Nutcracker).

The running time includes one interval.
