The Dutch National Ballet’s enchanting Nutcracker & the Mouse King is set in a magical canal house in Amsterdam on the eve of the feast of St. Nicholas.

Choreographed by the internationally acclaimed Wayne Eagling in association with the set designer Toer van Schayk, an epic battle between the Mouse King and the Nutcracker Prince unfolds against a backdrop of frozen canals, skillful skaters and falling snow, assisted by a host of fairytale characters.

One of the ballet world’s star couples, Anna Tsygankova and Matthew Golding, lead a truly international cast for this worldwide cinema broadcast – perfect Christmas entertainment for the whole family.

The Dutch National Ballet is one of Europe's leading classical ballet companies with an extensive repertoire of large-scale productions by well-known choreographers.

"Wayne Eagling and Toer van Schayk's Nutcracker & the Mouse King is a production so full of magical moments. It's a great story told with skill and imagination, the scenes edited with cinematic mastery. The attention to detail is superb as every opportunity for magic is grasped and exploited. Toer van Schayk's sets and costumes are simply breathtaking in their imagination." Dance Europe
