The enchanting family favourite is back in the repertoire! The beloved ballet classic, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, is a cherished tradition for friends and families alike. Tchaikovsky’s familiar music, the magical sets, and the spectacular costumes whisk the audience miles away from the everyday worries.
The story begins when Klaara, who lives in the wintery Finnish town of Porvoo, is taken on a fairy-tale journey on Christmas night. She meets the army of mice, exotic visitors from faraway lands, and a prince turned into a nutcracker by a spell. The exciting plot twists of this ballet will grip visitors of all ages.
