New Nutcracker Designs

This year, for one year only, we are excited to be presenting in Birmingham a specially adapted version of our London Nutcracker, previously only seen by audiences at the Royal Albert Hall.

With designs by Dick Bird and additional choreography by Sir David Bintley, the Royal Albert Hall version of The Nutcracker features all the family favourite elements of Sir Peter Wright's magical Christmas classic. Tchaikovsky's enchanting score is performed by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia from a platform at the back of the stage.

Nutcracker performances at the Hippodrome can be booked here.

Details of our Royal Albert Hall performances can be booked here.

Sir Peter Wright’s original legendary production of The Nutcracker will return to the Hippodrome stage, refreshed and revitalised following a major refurbishment, for Christmas 2022.
