A late Christmas treat!

As part of their 2025 UK season, Varna International Ballet is bringing back their wonderful imagining of The Nutcracker, offering a little bit of Christmas spirit in a sparkling and classic production that'll delight, even after the big day itself! Expect glittering sets, costumes and traditional ballet, wrapped up in Tchaikovsky's unforgettable score.

What is the story?

We open on Christmas Eve, in the Stahlbaum house. There's music and presents and food, and the three Stahlbaum children are beside themselves with joy at the wonder of it all. There's danger on the horizon though, heralded by the arrival at the door of local magician Drosselmeyer. He brings bearing gifts for the children, including a wooden nutcracker. This is just the start of an adventure that will lead our characters into a war between mice and gingerbread men and through the Land of Sweets.
