The Nutcracker



On Christmas Eve, a little girl named Clara falls asleep after a party at her home and dreams herself, or does she? into a fantastic world where toys become larger than life. Her beloved Nutcracker comes to life and defends her from the Mouse King, then is turned into a Prince after Clara saves his life.

Expect a joyous explosion of colour as Melbourne City Ballet finish off 2019 by bringing to life this audience favourite across Victoria and South Australia!

This will be Melbourne City Ballet's first tour of South Australia and first presentation of this classical ballet! Come join us for a new Christmas tradition for the whole family.
