    The Nutcracker at Royal Albert Hall

    Those first few days just after Christmas can get a little hazy. You’re not quite sure what to do with yourself. You don’t know what day of the week it is, and you don’t want just to spend another day sitting on the sofa digging into another box of chocolates.

    Why not do something a little special and join in with what has now become a tradition at the historic Royal Albert Hall?

    The Nutcracker is back once again for a post-Christmas residency for a performance that will delight all ages and those of us who wouldn’t usually think that an afternoon of ballet sounds like much fun.

    Whether you’re just popping down for the day and need to know all the essential information or are thinking an overnight break in London is an ideal way to spend some time relaxing after all the madness of Christmas, let Fraser Suites Queens’ Gate provide you with everything you need to know about this event.

    The Nutcracker

    What is The Nutcracker at Royal Albert Hall about?

    For many people, The Nutcracker is one of those shows you always hear about around Christmas, or maybe only catch a glimpse of when flipping through channels on the TV, but don’t actually know the story or why it’s always on this time of year.

    The Nutcracker is a ballet set around Christmas Eve about a girl who travels to the “land of sweets”. It wasn’t a very popular performance when originally adapted from a short story to a ballet by Tchaikovsky but became associated with Christmas from the 1940s when many theatres in Europe ad American started putting it on as a timely event.

    Today in many well-known theatres just like the Royal Albert Hall, The Nutcracker is a firm Christmas favourite.
