  • Time: 2pm | 7pm
  • Pricing: £29.90 - £37.80

Take a trip to York Barbican for a dazzling production of the most famous ballet in the world, The Nutcracker.

Snow flurries, sweets, princes, magic and love are just some of the elements that will be brought together by The Russian State Ballet in this eternal seasonal favourite.

A highly accessible ballet, full of familiar music such as the Waltz of the Flowers and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

This ballet continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of all generations across the world. It is a truly captivating piece of theatre, a wonderful introduction to ballet whilst retaining its appeal for anyone familiar with it.

‘For many people, The Nutcracker is the true curtain-raiser to Christmas, bringing a special magic to the advent season. This production holds nothing back in any department, and the audience was rewarded with a show of great power and presence.’ Jim Gillespie, Review Hub.
