After a complete sell-out season BIG Live makes a triumphant return this holiday season with The Nutcracker. Now touring all across Australia.

“The Nutcracker” tells the enchanting story of Clara, a young girl who receives a nutcracker doll as a Christmas gift from her mysterious godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. That night, her imagination transforms the Nutcracker into a brave prince.

Together, they battle the wicked Mouse King and embark on a magical journey through the Land of Sweets. Guided by the Sugar Plum Fairy, they encounter delightful characters such as the Snow Queen and Arabian dancers.

As Clara and the Nutcracker Prince dance through the enchanting realms, the story unfolds with a mix of dreamlike sequences and holiday charm. The Nutcracker is a timeless classical ballet composed by Tchaikovsky, based on the E.T.A Hoffman Christmas tale, “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.” It debuted in 1892 and has since become one of the world’s most celebrated Christmas traditions.
