Based on a concept by Toer van Schayk and Wayne Eagling, Nutcracker is choreographed by Eagling and accompanied by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s memorable score performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
Last year saw English National Ballet’s most successful Nutcracker run on record, when over 79,000 people made a performance at the London Coliseum a part of their holiday celebrations. This year’s tour of Wayne Eagling’s version continues the Company’s tradition of presenting a Nutcracker production every year since 1950, its founding year.
This Christmas, give the gift of ballet to a loved one with English National Ballet’s Friends and Ballet Buddies schemes, offering a range of unique and rewarding experiences bringing people closer to the artistic process. For more information, please see: www.ballet.org.uk/join-give
