A magician with secrets, an enchanted gift, a guiding angel and a journey to the Kingdom of Sweets. The seasonal favourite The Nutcracker draws on all the imagination and fantasy of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story of Christmas Eve, when young Clara creeps downstairs for one of her presents, but finds herself instead at the start of a night of magical adventures.
