It’s the magical tale of a winter wonderland, dancing snowflakes and the kingdom of the Sugar Plum Fairy … here’s our top five reasons why you should book tickets for The Nutcracker, plus your chance to win a pair of tickets. Now on at the Birmingham Hippodrome.

It’s the ultimate feel-good family festive story … follow Clara through the worlds of her imagination as she drifts off to sleep on Christmas Eve. Whether you’re eight or 80, you’ll be mesmerised by the dashing Nutcracker Prince, the larger-than-life Rat King and the luscious land of sweets.

You’ll see one of the finest ballet companies … watch the stage come alive thanks to the world-class dancers from Birmingham’s very own Royal Ballet company. A visual feast, beautifully told, and  certain to whisk you into the pages of a classic fairy tale.

The music is just beautiful … Tchaikovsky’s soaring score is performed by the 50-strong Royal Ballet Sinfonia, who take centre stage in a production that brings the orchestra out from the pit and onto a platform raised above the stage.

The costumes are stunning … a whole host of gorgeous period costumes – under the direction of Elaine Garlick – are created to conjure up a spellbinding fantasy world, allowing the dancers to weave their magic.

And it’s packed with the sparkle and magic … there’s no better way to start your festive celebrations than David Bintley’s extraordinary production; bought to life by Set Designer Dick Bird’s wall of mirrors and beautiful projections by award-winning 59 Productions.
