Tour Dates Announced For Matthew Bourne's NUTCRACKER

Tour Dates Announced For Matthew Bourne's NUTCRACKER

New Adventures has announced extensive dates for 2020/21 UK and Ireland tour of Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker!. International tour dates for 2021 to be announced shortly.

The tour opens at Theatre Royal Plymouth on Monday 16 November 2020 ahead of a Christmas Season at Sadler's Wells, London from Tuesday 8 December 2020 to Sunday 24 January 2021. The tour then continues until May 2021, visiting a total of 17 venues across the UK and Ireland. Full listings below.

The sweetest of all Matthew Bourne's treats returns for the first time in nine years; it's a Nutcracker! for all seasons. 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, influenced by the lavish Hollywood musicals of the 1930s.

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 classic. Expect a sprinkling of delicious new surprises in this reinvented production for 2020.

Recipient of the 2019 Special Olivier Award, Sir Matthew Bourne and New Adventures have produced some of the most successful dance productions of the last two decades. A truly national dance-theatre touring company and one of Britain's leading exporters of dance internationally, their productions include Swan Lake, Cinderella, The Red Shoes, Edward Scissorhands and most recently Matthew Bourne's acclaimed re-imagining of Romeo and Juliet.

New Adventures is a national portfolio organisation supported using public funds by Arts Council England.
