The Nutcracker - one of our favourite Christmas ballets is in Cardiff this Christmas

The Christmas ballet with a Welsh twist.

The Cardiff Christmas Festival opens with a festive classic, performed in the intimacy of a magical Spiegeltent.

Already a firm family favourite with those who attended the celebrated opening run in 2021, The Rubicon Dance Company presents its highly acclaimed full-length contemporary ballet of The Nutcracker - Wales’ first reimagining of its kind, featuring a rich cast of recognisably Welsh characters, including Uncle Idris, Bop Sheila & Bopa Linda and The Mari Lwyd!

Audiences are invited along for a magical ride through the Williams’ Family Christmas.  We are taken into a dream world of snowstorms!

Suitable for all ages.

Running Time Approximately 1 Hour & 10 mins (with no interval)
