Ballet Ireland is delighted to return with The Nutcracker – one of the world’s favourite ballets.

This timeless classic, complete with glittering costumes and Tchaikovsky’s beloved & sumptuous score, takes audiences on a wondrous adventure full of quintessential Christmas magic.

It’s Christmas Eve. A marvelous party is taking place where the mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer brings gifts for all the children. When midnight strikes, very strange things start to happen … The Christmas tree grows to incredible height and Clara’s magical Christmas gift – her Nutcracker – leads them into a fairy-tale world!

With her heroic Nutcracker at her side, Clara defeats the Mouse King and his army of mice and they journey to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets together.

This holiday season, experience the beauty and magic of Ballet Ireland’s Nutcracker, performed by an international cast of world-class dancers, with the whole family.

Christmas only begins once you’ve seen Ballet Ireland’s The Nutcracker!
