CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

Due to the new COVID-19 restrictions, the Royal Opera House will be closed to live audiences from Thursday 5 November. We will update you as soon as we have more information. The Nutcracker returns to the stage this Christmas in a reworked, COVID-safe version for The Royal Ballet. This restaging of Peter Wright's celebrated two-act production features students of The Royal Ballet School alongside the full Company. Many of the much-loved elements of this cherished classic remain, from the magical growing Christmas tree, to the enchanting dance of the snowflakes and spectacular pas de deux with the Sugar Plum Fairy and her prince in the Kingdom of Sweets. There will be a new battle scene between the Nutcracker and the Mouse King and their armies choreographed by Will Tuckett. This festive treat for the whole family has a special place in the hearts of ballet fans around the world, a production that has captivated children and adults alike since its first performance by The Royal Ballet in 1984. Combined with Tchaikovsky's sumptuous score and charming designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, this is a magical ballet for the whole family.
