Announcement: Simon Callow to voice Drosselmeyer at RAH

For the first time ever, this Christmas, Birmingham Royal Ballet brings its enchanting production of this Christmas favourite to the Royal Albert Hall. This magical ballet, with its ravishing Tchaikovsky score, is the quintessential Christmas treat for all the family.

We're now thrilled to announce that Simon Callow will provide the voice of Clara’s mysterious godfather, Drosselmeyer. Video and projection by Tony-Award-winning 59 Productions (An American in ParisWar Horse) and gorgeous period costumes conjure up a spellbinding fantasy world, in which our dancers and orchestra weave their magic.
