Having captured the hearts and imaginations of generations of theatregoers, Birmingham Royal Ballet’s traditional and much-loved Christmas production of ‘The Nutcracker‘ will return to the Birmingham Hippodrome from 23 November to 13 December 2018.

Birmingham Royal Ballet has also announced that the spectacularly reimagined version of the production will return to the Royal Albert Hall in London from 28 to 31 December 2018, following a critically acclaimed premiere in 2017.



Created in 1990 as a gift to the city of Birmingham, Sir Peter Wright’s The Nutcracker combines gigantic sets, lavish costumes, 60 dancers and instantly recognisable music played the Royal Ballet Sinfonia to create the perfect Christmas treat for the entire family.
