THE NUTCRACKER AND THE MOUSE KING Comes to New National Theatre in December

Highly acclaimed as a classic masterpiece taken to new frontiers when premiered as a new production in 2017, this work features splendid, fast-paced choreography with a sense of humour by Wayne EAGLING, while the rich colours of the sets and costumes describe the world of reality and a dream.

Full of highlight scenes, from the sophisticated pas de deux of the leading characters, beautiful corps de ballet of the snow scene and flower waltz to the divertissements of the second act, it is no exaggeration to say that this production fully showcases the talent of the National Ballet of Japan dancers.

Performances run 23 December - 3 January 2023.
