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!

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.

Book early and secure the best seats at the best price! We reserve the right to change prices.
