Talk Ballet - Scottish Ballet's The Nutcracker

Hear about the making of the production direct from members of our Artistic and Engagement teams. This fascinating half-hour talk is the perfect way to learn more about the show before you take your seat.

A magical family adventure

Costumes plucked from the most gorgeous chocolate box; Tchaikovsky’s score to transport you to a land of dreams, and a story lifted straight from the pages of a classic fairy tale.

We follow Clara on a journey through the worlds of her imagination, as she drifts off to sleep on Christmas Eve. She meets the dashing Nutcracker Prince, takes on the larger-than-life Rat King, and is whisked into the luscious land of sweets by the Sugar Plum Fairy!

This winter, banish the dark skies and enjoy a visual feast as we take you and your family on a fantastical adventure. With choreography by Scottish Ballet founder Peter Darrell, and live music played by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra, this ever-popular ballet is the perfect Christmas treat.
