The Royal Ballet Covent Garden captures all the fantasy and magic of one of the world's most popular ballets, based on E.T.A. Hoffmann's enchanting story of The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. Guest conductor Gennaday Rozhdestvensky draws "ravishing playing from this most ravishing of Tchaikovsky's ballet scores." (Guardian)

Though the original scenario for The Nutcracker was considered to be fatally flawed, this delightful work has survived to become one of the most enduring favorites in the ballet repertory. This new production by the Artistic Designer of the Royal Ballet, Peter Wright, with the help of Tchaikovsky ballet expert Roland John Wiley, resurrects from far-flung archives the original Ivanov/Sergueyev staging, and combines it with captivating modern stage effects.
