Premiered in December 2017, The Nutcracker transports us to a magical land full of fantastical characters.  In this delightful new telling, the adventures of little Mary and her toy nutcracker are combined with Tchaikovsky’s much-loved ballet suite, uniting narrator and orchestra to bring the story vividly to life for children of all ages.

The Nutcracker can be performed using the existing orchestral suite Op 71a, or parts for a slightly reduced chamber orchestra version (corresponding exactly to the orchestration of Howard Blake’s score for The Snowman film) can be hired from Music Link International.
