From swirling snowflakes, intricately lavish costumes, and magnificent sceneries, this ballet rendition of The Nutcracker will have you spellbound and your eyes glued on the performers on stage.

No matter how old you are, you can never cease to be captivated by the sugar plum fairy, and the prince as they make their way through the land of sweets, all while Tchaikovsky’s soul-moving music just takes everything to the next level.
