Holiday & Christmas ShowsBalletDance & BalletThe Nutcracker

A Cuban Twist

The classic tale of the Nutcracker gets a thrilling new take courtesy of Cuban-British ballet superstar Carlos Acosta! Reimagining Tchaikovsky's timeless score into a Cuban style with musician, composer and arranger Pepe Gavilondo, Acosta's Nutcracker is set in the vibrant city of Havana, with breathtaking traditional Cuban choreography at its core as the locals prepare for a Christmas like no other! All enhanced by stunning set design and live visuals by Nina Dunn, costume design by Angelo Alberto and lighting designed by Andrew Exeter, witness the Nutcracker like you've never seen it before.

What is the story?

One of the world's favourite holiday experiences, The Nutcracker is based on ETA Hoffman's enchanting novella of the same name. Telling the tale of Clara and the mysterious Nutcracker doll she receives from her godfather on Christmas Eve, The Nutcracker opens up a world of winter wonder - even in the warm climate of Cuba - as Clara and her doll are whisked into a fantasy realm where nothing is as it seems.
