Matthew Bourne's much loved production of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker! for The New Adventures Company, is one of the most popular dance productions ever staged at Sadler's Wells in London. Now Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker!, one of the most popular dance productions ever staged in the UK, returns to LOndon's Sadler's Wells Theatre for a strictly limited record-breaking sixth Christmas season which celebrates the production's 20th Anniversary!

This delicious theatrical feast has family-sized helpings of Matthew Bourne's trademark wit, pathos and magical fantasy. Nutcracker! follows Clara's bittersweet journey from a hilariously bleak Christmas Eve at Dr. Dross' Orphanage, through a shimmering, ice-skating winter wonderland to the scrumptious candy kingdom of Sweetieland. Tchaikovsky's glorious score and Anthony Ward's unforgettable sets and costumes combine with sizzling choreography to create a fresh, hip and charmingly irreverent interpretation of the traditional Christmas favourite.

Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker in London promises to be a treat this Christmas!
