About Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker!

It’s a Nutcracker! like no other, adored by critics and audiences alike. With family-sized helpings of Bourne’s trademark wit, pathos and magical fantasy, Nutcracker! follows Clara’s bittersweet journey from a darkly comic 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 delectable sets and costumes combine with Bourne’s dazzling choreography to create a fresh and charmingly irreverent interpretation of the traditional Christmas favourite. Expect a sprinkling of delicious new surprises in this refreshed production for 2020. Hailed by The Observer as ‘the undisputed king of dance theatre’, master storyteller Matthew Bourne and his New Adventures company have produced some of the most successful dance productions of the last two decades including Swan Lake, Cinderella, The Red Shoes, Edward Scissorhands and most recently his acclaimed re-imagining of Romeo and Juliet.
