After a year away, Birmingham’s Royal Ballet is returning to the capital for seven performances of The Nutcracker at Royal Albert Hall. Not only does it feature world-class dancers, wintry soundscapes and Tchaikovsky’s score at the centre of it all, but an orchestra that’s out of the pit and raised above the stage. Ballet fans, this is the perfect way to see out the year.
Tues 28th – Fri 31st December
