Uncover the original story behind the ballet.
This Christmas the Unicorn goes back to the roots of E.T.A. Hoffman's magical story to create this wondrous and festive production of an old and favourite title.
It's Christmas Eve, 1805. Seven year-old Marie retrieves the sad and broken Nutcracker from under the Christmas tree and promises to look after him. But on the stroke of midnight he comes alive, and after enlisting Marie’s help in his battle with the evil Mouse King, they journey together through strange and fantastical stories until they finally arrive in a secret land made of nothing but candy.
Full of magic, mice and adventure, this will be a Christmas show to remember.
