About the Show/Event
Information for Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker! at Festival Theatre, Edinburgh (Dance or ballet). With family-sized helpings of Bourne's trademark wit, pathos and magical fantasy, Nutcracker! follows Clara's bittersweet journey from a darkly comic Christmas Eve at Dr. Dross' Orphanage, through a shimmering, ice-skating winter wonderland to the scrumptious candy kingdom of Sweetieland.

Expect a sprinkling of delicious new surprises in this refreshed production for 2020.
