Scottish Ballet: The Nutcracker
The festive favourite set to Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score. Peter Darrell’s production of The Nutcracker evokes the magical adventure of Clara and her Nutcracker Prince.
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.
We follow Clara on a journey through the worlds of her imagination as she drifts off to sleep on Christmas Eve. She meets the dashing Nutcracker Prince, takes on the larger-than-life Rat King, and is whisked into the luscious land of sweets by the Sugar Plum Fairy!
This winter, banish the dark skies and enjoy a visual feast as we take you and your family on a fantastical adventure. With choreography by Scottish Ballet founder Peter Darrell, and live music played by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra, this ever-popular ballet is the perfect Christmas treat.
The performance lasts approximately 2 hours including one 20-minute interval.
