The Nutcracker

It’s not Christmas without The Nutcracker! And in 2024 we are overjoyed to announce the return of Birmingham Royal Ballet’s festive favourite to the Royal Albert Hall. This enchanting production, featuring Tchaikovsky’s glorious score, is a sparkling festive treat for the whole family.

Created exclusively for the Royal Albert Hall, with gorgeous period costumes and dazzling projections, this Christmas classic is brought to life by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s world-class dancers and orchestra, the Royal Ballet Sinfonia.

Experience the true magic of Christmas, as Clara’s toys come to life at the stroke of midnight. Journey through a fantastical winter wonderland of dancing snowflakes to the kingdom of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
