Choreographed by Morgann Runacre-Temple, this exciting production of the festive classic performed by a cast of world-class dancers will appeal to audiences of all ages with its fairy-tale magic, beautiful costumes and a re-imagined Tchaikovsky score. A tale of wondrous adventure that combines to form one of the most delectable Christmas confections imaginable.

“This is a treat of a show, full of Christmas cheer. The department store here becomes a sacred space of transformation, an enclosed world dedicated entirely to dance, where cares and troubles are chased away like the rats in Act 1.”
